Fundraising

The Windom PTO holds several school-wide sales and events throughout the year to raise money for student and school activities (e.g., sponsorship of six teaching assistants from native Spanish-speaking countries, the BRAVO Music program, various reading programs, etc.) Forms and information will be sent home with your student before the start of each fundraising opportunity. If you need more forms, please visit the PTO Forms page, the link is on the right.

 

READ-A-THON (February)

This has been our biggest fundraiser for the last three years! Patti Lee and Lori Fewer are the organizers of this event.

During the entire month of February, Windom students are encouraged to read and track their daily minutes read, and to get sponsors to pledge money to support their reading. The funds raised will go to the PTO, which pays for teaching assistants, classroom activities, field trips and other school programs and events. Prizes will be awarded to students based upon minutes read and money raised.  

 

NOCHE DE FIESTA (Fall)

Windom parents, staff and community members get together for a fun evening of great music, fantastic food, exciting raffle packages, tempting prizes, and generous philanthropy! All proceeds from this event will enhance educational opportunities at Windom including sponsoring native-Spanish speaking TAs, the BRAVO music program, classroom enrichment, and more.
