Joe Walker PTA is doing something different this year. Instead of selling candy, popcorn or gift wrap (which takes a lot of effort and a small amount of money is made) we are asking for you to donate directly to our children’s education and middle school experience. Joe Walker PTA supports classroom materials, technology, athletic teams, band, field trips, and much more. PTA also hosts the annual Career Day event which brings together many different people throughout our community to expose our children to the career paths available to them and how to reach their goals. Instead of asking relatives and co-workers to buy an item we ask that you and your friends simply donate and have their giving go directly to our children.
Your generosity is truly appreciated.
