Ways to Support Your PTA Programs and Events

Your Donations at Work

Please help us reach our goal of raising $85,000 to cover Central Arroyo PTA’s proposed annual operating expenses for the 2019-20 school year!  You can support us by becoming a PTA Partner and participating in our annual fun run, Stampede & Soar, on October 6. 


We are asking for a one-time PTA Partner donation of $250 in the Fall, which consolidates fundraising efforts and allows for more efficient spending throughout the year. Every donation amount makes a difference, and we thank you in advance for any support you can give the Central Arroyo students and teachers!  DONATE TODAY on the school website or see payment options below. PTA Partnership also includes your annual PTA membership.

PTA Partner donations directly benefit Central and Arroyo programs and events including:

Teacher Grants & Supplies
Art in Action
Library Books
School Directory
Program Scholarships
Staff Appreciation
Community Building Events
School Beautification
School Assemblies
End-of-Year Celebrations
