Letter to the Editor: Support your local PTA

The Cordova Parent Teacher Association would like to thank the community for their ongoing support. 

The PTA, through your help, has provided a vast variety of support to the school district students and teachers. We have purchased supplementary classroom supplies for the teachers, provided fun and enriching experiences for the students and the community and we have granted scholarships to graduating seniors. 

We find ourselves in a unique situation this year. Although we will continue to provide services in a COVID safe way, the Halloween parade for example, we are unable to generate funds in many of our traditional ways. In the past carnivals, dinners, bake sales, popcorn sales and donations have generated the bulk of our funds. 

Our current COVID climate has prevented most of these fundraising strategies. We are currently working on an online auction to specifically fund the scholarship program, please consider participating in this important effort. However, this alone will not support our other needs. Therefore, this year we are trying something new. 

We ask that you consider, if able, making a free will donation to our PTA. These proceeds will support our on going work. You can visit our donation page at cdv.new.memberhub.store/store?category=Donations also checks can be made out to the Cordova PTA, PO Box 1296, Cordova. With your generous support we can continue to provide important services for our kids this school year.

Thank you from your PTA Board.
