During the school year the Adams PTA will hosts two major fundraising events, The Big Give and (our new) Move-A-Thon. Collectively these two events raise the majority of our PTA funds. Additional funding is raised throughout the year through our Everyday Ways To Give opportunities.  Our annual fundraising efforts provides our PTA the opportunity to support the Adams families, teachers and staff in the following ways.

  • Playground & Lunch staff

  • Math & Literacy tutors

  • social emotional learning (SEL) programing

  • Classroom supplies

  • Community engagement and events

  • school-wide assemblies

  • and more..

Adams families consistently step up with donations of time and money that helps us continue our efforts. This school year we aim to raise $135,000 through our two primary fundraising events.


Annual Fall "The Big Give" Event

Your PTA funds many items at Adams Elementary that support an excellent learning experience for ALL students. The Big Give is our primary fundraiser. This “direct donation” program is the least expensive way to raise money. Your donation helps the PTA uphold the commitments we have made to our school.

Moveathon FUNdraiser

Moveathon – What is it?

The Adams Moveathon is an all-school FUNdraising event and an incredible opportunity for students, families, and staff to come together to directly support Adams Elementary School. With emphasis on the “fun,” Moveathon is an active way for students to get directly involved in raising money for PTA-supported enrichment programs at their school.


Who participates, and how?

All students get to participate!  Before the event, students may set a personal lap goal, then collect pledges from family, friends, and neighbors-near and far. They may also collect flat contributions not tied to laps. On event day, each student will walk, stroll or run around a 1/12th mile track for 20 minutes, completing as many laps as possible. Afterwards, students will collect their pledge money and return it to the school.


We are working hard to make this event a huge success and know that the generosity of our Adams families and local businesses will help us succeed!


T-shirt design contest

New to Moveathon this year is an art contest which was open to all Adams students to create the design for the front of this year’s Moveathon t-shirt. This year's winner was third grader Sienna Ruf. Congratulations, Siena!
