Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Booster?
The PTO asks all parents of Lakeview school children to become a Booster and support the PTO with a tax-deductible donation. A Booster is someone who joins the PTO by making a donation of any amount which in turn provides financial support for students, teachers and all PTO sponsored events at Lakeview.
Each year, Lakeview kick starts the school year with our Boosters fundraiser. 100% of Lakeview kids benefit from our spending on technology in the classroom, reimbursement of teachers’ expenses, field trips, Arts Attack, Reflex Math, IXL, ST Math, Raz Kids, Brainpop, and so much more. It's never too late to donate - ANY amount helps. It would take a LOT of pressure off of our other fundraising efforts this year.
Why should I donate to Boosters?
The Boosters month is a fundraiser for the Lakeview PTO. Funds are invested in educational tools and activities which benefit Lakeview students. These include art, music, and after-school enrichment; classroom supplies; assemblies; school equipment; technology; and a majority of the software students use on a daily basis at home and at home.
How does Boosters raise money?
Funds are raised solely through donations and go directly to the Lakeview PTO. That’s right, no product sales, no middleman. Boosters is one of the biggest fundraisers for the school along with the Fall Harvest Festival and spring Golf Classic.
