The Trailblazer Club Campaign is the PTA’s primary fundraiser to support our great school.
Our goal is to raise $18,000 to help Mr. D and his staff by financially supporting many academic enrichment programs, in-class activities, and exciting events to build our community.
This campaign allows families to make one donation to the PTA without asking students to sell gift wrapping paper, magazine subscriptions, cookie dough, etc. during the year.
Some of the PTA-supported programs that benefit your student and will only be made possible by your campaign contributions are:
- Blazer Blast Prizes
- Cultural Arts Programs
- Student Agendas
- Reflections Program
- Technology Resources, such as Brain Pop, Reading A-Z, Study Island, and Raz-Kids
Donations made at the contribution levels listed below receive the following benefits:
- Platinum Level: ($150 and above)
2 PTA Memberships, 2 Magnets, Free Admission to a school festival*
AND entry for our special raffle including Mr. D and Blazer
- Gold Level: ($125)
2 PTA Memberships, 1 Magnet, and Free Admission to a school festival*

Our goal is 1 PTA membership per student. If we achieve 100% membership, Mr. D. spends the day on the roof!!!!
PTA membership is included with ALL Trailblazer Club levels. Additional/individual memberships can be purchased for $5.
