General Events and Activities
Tinton Falls PTA awards grants for programs or supplies not ordinarily available through district funding. All teachers and staff members are eligible to submit requests. A committee of PTA volunteers is formed each year to review the applications and determine which ones will be awarded grant money. In prior years, this program has funded things like microscopes for the science department, a sound system for the music department, computer programs for the computer lab and various teacher-requested items like nonfiction books and books with audiotapes. This year, the PTA will be awarding $10,000 in grant money.
Box tops are collected monthly to raise money for each school. Children who collect the most box tops are awarded prizes.
Coupon Book Fundraiser
The PTA sells KidStuff coupon books at the beginning of the school year as a fundraiser. These books offer valuable coupons for area shopping, restaurants and activities, and it has often been said that the book quickly pays for itself. PTA volunteers help distribute books and collect orders and returned books.
First held in 2012, the PTA Comedy Night was an instant success. The evening was filled with great raffle baskets, great companionship and an extraordinary amount of laughter. PTA volunteers organize all aspects of the event, including venue choice, gift basket coordination, sponsorships and more.
Yankee Candle Fundraiser
Held at the beginning of each year, the Yankee Candle fundraiser offers great gift ideas for your family, teachers and many others on your holiday lists. This is one of our largest fundraisers for the year. PTA volunteers help distribute information, collect orders and distribute products.
