Teller PTA

The purpose of the Teller Elementary Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is to raise funds, promote volunteering, support our faculty and teachers and foster a sense of community.

The PTA encourages parents to become engaged in the school community by providing opportunities to get involved, communicating about upcoming events and news within the school community, and fundraising to supplement the funds Teller Elementary receives from Denver Public Schools. We hope the following information helps you find out more about ways that you can get involved and support our wonderful school.

Fundraising Goals:

Our goal is to raise $150,000 this year. Most of the money we raise during the year is given to the school as an annual grant, and the Collaborative School Committee (CSC) decides how that money can best benefit our school and its students. Like other top-ranked schools we raise significant additional funds to keep our student/teacher ratios low and fill any deficits in public funding to make our school the best it can be.

Primary fundraising activities include: Simply Giving, School Supply Drive, Totally Teller Live & Silent Auction, and Tellerpalooza. Additionally, money is also raised through support programs including Gift Cards, Amazon Smile, Shop Back/Restaurant Nights, and other community fundraising events. Volunteering opportunities both large and small are available throughout the year, as are community-building events that let our community spend time together. The PTA proudly supports our school’s community culture by organizing the Halloween Carnival, the Spring Dances, Staff Appreciation Week, Scholastic Book Fairs, organizing social events such as “Teller After Hours,” supporting the Teller Garden and so much more!
