Due to serious cuts in the state budget in recent years, PTAs are increasingly filling the gaps and helping to fund basics such as classroom supplies and equipment, as well as librarians and school nurses.

The Addison PTA funds events and programs that promote student enrichment, adult education and community engagement. In addition, the Addison PTA provides funds for the following:

Classroom Supplies

The PTA provides money for classroom school supplies including pencils, pens, crayons, paper, glue, scissors and more.

PE & Recess Equipment

The PTA supports the cost of PE and recess equipment to enrich the physical fitness and recreation aspect of the school.


The PTA helps fund the purchase of technology including smart boards, laptops and software to ensure that students have access to current learning tools.

Library Books

The PTA helps fund the purchase of books for the Addison library. In addition, the annual Book Fair fundraiser provides gift cards to teachers for purchasing books for their classrooms.

Emergency Supplies

The PTA helps to fund any additional emergency supplies that are not covered by PAUSD which would benefit our school in case of an emergency.
