Our mission

A powerful voice for all children,
A relevant resource for families and communities, and
A strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child.

We help support the academic and cultural needs of all Conn students through volunteerism and fundraising efforts, and we focus our enrichment and support efforts in five main areas: Cultural Arts, Positive Behavior Support (PBIS), Educator Support, Media Center, and Parental/Community Outreach and Involvement.


Here's how we raise money

  • All for Conn: an annual fundraiser where all proceeds go directly to the Conn PTA....no items to sell or deliver!
  • CONNival: an annual carnival with games, prizes, food and more!
  • Merchandise Sales: buy Conn goods to support the school.
  • Passive Fundraising: collect box tops and connect your shoppers cards for an easy way to donate to Conn, while you're shopping!
