Our Grand total raised…

Tigers! We are ecstatic to announce our fundraising total for Tiger Walk. Drumroll please...we DOUBLED our goal! We collectively raised $20,000! That's AMAZING! And a testament to how much energy and love our community has for our school. We will do great things with the funds – all for our kids and teachers. THANK YOU to everyone who donated and to our sponsors. We are grateful and so excited for all the good to come.

We did it!!!

Tigers! We are thrilled, proud, and grateful to announce that we have not only met our Tiger Walk goal, but surpassed it. We are over $11,000 and counting. Incredible!!  We are so appreciative of our tiger community and we will be celebrating at the walk on Friday! Please keep spreading the word and donating. Every donation counts toward enriching our kids' school experience and supporting our hardworking staff.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you to our generous sponsors of Tiger Walk. Carnation Market, Sandy’s Espresso, Miller’s Carnation, Carnation Café, Buttonsmith, Billing by Bailey, Twin Falls Consulting, and Frankie & Jo’s. These companies stepped up in generous support of our kids and school! We are so fortunate to live in such a supportive community.

We are so close to our goal!!!

We have next week to get us to our goal! There is so much that the PTSA does for our school!
Here are two short anecdotes from parents about what the PTSA has provided for their children:
“My daughter started kindergarten last year, and it was exciting and also scary sending my first child to school while still in the pandemic and unable to see her inside to the classroom. But when we pulled up for a drive-by Superhero welcome and the wonderful kindergarten teachers excitedly gave her a bag of school supplies and a Tiger t-shirt, she was beyond thrilled, and (both of our) nerves went away. The PTSA funded the supplies and shirts that made a big difference in feeling welcomed as a Tiger – thank you!” – Kindergarten mom
“PTSA has brought a number of great memories to both my children's Carnation Elementary experience. I fondly remember a sponsored book donation drive in 2020. When I arrived to pick them up, it was so fun seeing kids of all ages (plus teachers, staff, and parents) enthralled as books were read. If you have not heard Mr. Heimfeld read a story, you are missing out! Then the delight in each child as they got to select a book to take home. PTSA brings special school moments beyond those in the classroom. It provides the thrill of yelling Bingo, eating ice cream with your friends, and a way to connect with other adults knowing we are all together in raising these amazing children! Further, the funds raised help to improve the school experience for all students - such as providing classroom supplies, field trips and funding grants for needed equipment.” – Fifth and second grade mom
The PTSA matters...we actively support all kids at Carnation Elementary. Funds go straight back to the school and our children! Please, continue to DONATE!
An easy and impactful way to double your gift is through corporate matching. Please contact your HR department to find out your company’s matching policy, and contact us with any questions. ALL funds go straight back to the school, providing teachers with classroom supplies, science enrichment, t-shirts for incoming kinders, art supplies for docents, and so much more. And funds raised beyond the PTSA’s working budget are earmarked for a playground refresh. Let’s make this dream a reality!
