Direct Appeal – Support Your School!

Please see the PTO’s Direct Appeal letter here!

We know that your family is busy and you have many competing requests for your time and money. The most direct way that Velma Hamilton parents can financially support our classrooms and community is to make a donation to the PTO. We ask you, just once a school year, to make a gift to raise much needed funds.

We appreciate all donations. If every family donated $15 per student, we would reach our goal!

Thank you!
