Pleasant Ridge Fall Fundraiser and Fun Run

Today we kicked off our Fall Fundraiser which is our biggest fundraiser of the year!  

This event funds our annual budget which helps provide an enriching student experience throughout the year!  With your help the PTA is able to support a variety of events and donations which include transportation for field trips, author visits, new books, teacher donations, student parties and activities, assemblies, special mini grants and strategic grants, teacher appreciation activities, field day, family enrichment events and more!

Last year our students had so much fun at the “Color Me Silly Fun Run”, we decided to have the same theme again this year!  Students and staff are encouraged to dress as silly, colorful, and bright on the day of the run, September 30th – promoting the more they raise the sillier they will dress.  

This year all students will receive their own fundraising site which you can personalize to send to your family and friends.  From here you can also track the donations your child receives!  Please help us reach our goal by supporting the Fun Run. If every student raises just $50 we would reach our goal!  That is just five $10 donations!  Some can easily raise $100 or more by just sharing their page by email, text or social media.  

Register your students today!

Students will each receive a flyer and donation envelope. 100% of Cash/check donations go back to PR. Checks can be made out to Pleasant Ridge Elementary PTA. Cash and check donations should be sent back to school by Oct. 7th in the donation envelope (please make sure the students name and teacher are on the envelope).  The flyer also contains a QR code to access our online donation site. All donations are tax exempt!   Want to double or triple your gift? Pleasant Ridge PTA is a non-profit and qualifies for employer match programs! PR would be honored to receive their contribution.

Important Dates:
Kickoff:             September 16th
Fun Run:          September 30th (early release day) at PR Playground
Donations due: Oct. 7th

Spectators are more than welcome to cheer on their students and volunteer sign up will be shared soon!  

As always, PR would not be the amazing school that it is without your support and care. Thank you for being a part of making it a fantastic place for all the children to learn, play, and be silly. If you have any questions, please reach out to Natalie Samp at
