As a dedicated group of parents and guardians, we are committed to offering support to staff and students in a variety of ways to ensure that our children have opportunities within the school and community. We offer community-building events, classroom programs, school-wide assemblies, and financial support for teachers’ continuing education. At our monthly meetings, we come together to plan and implement our vision and goals. In recent years, we’ve sponsored the fall dance, zoo outreach, silent auction, afterschool enrichment programs, free book giveaways to each student, field trips, Chromebooks for all students in 2nd grade – 5th grade, and Promethean boards for all grades, kindergarten – 5th.
PTA runs some treasured school events and activities, including:
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to our PTA!
Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile?
Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. If you have Amazon Prime, you can still use it with AmazonSmile.
How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
Simply go to smile.amazon.com and log on with your existing Amazon.com account information. Then you need to select McKinley-Thatcher PTA as your charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation. Each time you will shop starting from smile.amazon.com – same products and prices.
