Back to the Future- Campaign
The Allen High School & Lowery Freshman Center PTSA (Parent, Teacher & Student Association) would like to invite community businesses to partner with us on an exciting “Back the Future” campaign. Your financial support will make every child’s potential a reality at Allen High School. As a business partner you will be able to impact and promote a large student demographic right here in your area.
Your generous sponsorship of $100-249 - Allen Eagle PTSA Silver Sponsor will help us achieve this goal. We will be happy to accept your flyers, or other items from your business, to pass out to students and parents at our events.
As a gesture of appreciation, any donation of $250 or more (Allen Eagle PTSA Gold Sponsor) will grant your business a sponsorship link on our Allen PTSA website, offering a great way to advertise your business within our student/parent population of over 5000 AND highlight your business on our Facebook page 3 times per year in addition to the silver level.
This campaign will allow PTSA to keep offering Scholarships, Teacher Appreciation events and parent informational seminars, just to name a few!

WHY WE FUND RAISEWhy do we need to fund raise? This is the fundamental question that all parents have in the back of their minds as they get started in the public school system - especially with all of the property taxes that we pay each year. The funding to the school districts does a great job of covering our buildings, teachers' salaries, administration of the district, books, and other necessities. But lost in that are some much needed student enrichment programs and community building activities that make the overall learning environment what it needs to be for all of our kids. The answer to this question comes right from the very mission statement of the PTA/PTSA... "to develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social and spiritual education." In order to carry out our mission, we must raise funds - but fundraising is NOT our mission. The funds we receive are put to use for student programs, teacher resources, family-focused activities, and even school improvements.
