INVEST is our primary PTSO fundraiser. We like to call it our Academic Booster Club as it provides funds that go beyond the mere essentials of an education. Hillsboro has a tradition of getting students involved in many aspects of school, and you’ll find a thriving sense of community. Our school and community are made stronger by families like yours joining us by INVESTing in our school.
INVEST makes up about 50% of our annual PTSO budget and is targeted directly to academic enrichment. Every INVEST dollar impacts students in the classroom, whether spent on science lab supplies, faculty professional development, class field trips, or any number of other requests. We are proud to say we were able to honor every request made by our teachers last year because of the generosity of our parents. We want to be able to do that again this year. Our teachers are second-to-none and have outstanding plans to continue making learning meaningful for our students.
Typically, fewer than 100 families contribute to INVEST. This year, we’d love to see EVERY Burro family participate at some level. From $5 to $5,000, every donation makes a difference for our teachers and students.
