Tri-E-Thalon Message from PFC President

Hi Kolb Parents,

     Our annual Tri-E-Thalon is just around the corner, and our volunteers have been working around the clock, with the teachers and staff, to assure a super  FUNdraiser for Kolb!  It is not only important for our students to enjoy this FUNdraiser, it's imperative we bring in the necessary monetary support needed to continue to provide what our PFC has been providing for Kolb.  Did you know that California is one of the bottom ranked states that allocate funds to schools?  The state also does not provide funding for co-curricular or extra-curricular activities.  This is why we, as the PFC (Parent Faculty Club), work so hard to FUNdraise.  Without the PFC it would just be very basic instruction with very basic equipment provided only by our school district, and in this day and age, with our competitive educational market, it is just not adequate. 
     I sit at every PFC meeting and listen to the teacher requests coming in, listen to the assembly proposals, and listen to all the really cool things parents want to do at Kolb, and right now, we are able to approve most, if not all of these items.  You've already heard about the standard events PFC provides (Donuts with Dads, Muffins with Moms, Field Trip Buses), but what about the fact that last month the PFC just approved the payment for new 4th grade reading, math and comprehension supplies to assist with reading intervention and support the common core curriculum?  PFC also approved the funding for an in-house, school-wide (that means EVERY student benefits) planetarium visit!  For all you kindergarten parents, the PFC supplements your in-house field trips, such as the most recent visiting pumpkin patch.  PFC also provides the funds for the Character Committee program at Kolb, and Soul Shoppe (anti-bullying) campaign at Kolb, both of which would NOT be at Kolb if our PFC did not have these valuable funds.  I am proud be a part of the PFC that raises money to be able to give the teachers what they feel they need to enhance each students education in the best way they think is possible.  
     This will not continue unless we raise adequate funds at our Tri-E-Thalon. The goal for this year's Tri-E-Thalon FUNdraiser is $30,000.  With the trickling in of donations, I fear we are not going to meet this goal, let alone exceed it (which would be nice).  Let me put it into perspective, John Green Elementary raised $58,000 at their Gator Gallop last month. To date, roughly HALF of the Kolb students turned in their donation envelopes for this week's Tri-E-Thalon.  Kolb parents have been extremely generous with charity, filling 3 bins of canned food, and 64 lbs of candy for our military troops, now its time to give to support your own students. 
     Thank you, to those of you who have already donated.  If you haven't donated yet, or would like to donate more, you can still place a sealed envelope with your voluntary donations of any amount in to the PFC lockbox located outside the office doors, OR you can donate online by clicking on the "donate now" button below to make your contribution.  Please make check donations out to "KOLB PFC".  Donations will be accepted through December 15th.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Natasha Giannini
Kolb PFC, President
