I Heart Kolter


i heart kolter-1

Join us today in making Kolter a stronger school for our children by making a contribution to  the I Heart Kolter Family Underwriting Campaign.

Every year your PTO makes significant contributions to the vital needs of the school, and the majority of this comes from contributions from families like yours.  In recent years, PTO funds have paid for new technology for the classrooms, supplies for science, language and art, as well as improvement and maintenance of the garden, pond and prairie.  Most recently, your PTO has purchased leveled reading libraries for each classroom, all new PE equipment, and language lab software for Spanish, Chinese and French as well as a new cafeteria sound system and stage curtains.

With all of the state and district funding cuts it is up to our PTO to give the school financial support for the extra needs to keep Kolter strong. We have been an exemplary school 11 of the last 12 years and named one of top schools in Texas by Texas Monthly Magazine.

There is no dollar amount too small to help support our kids, but we hope that you will take the time to be thoughtful about your contribution and give a gift that is meaningful to your family.  We know that you are prioritizing your budget every day and we hope that building a stronger Kolter is up at the top of your priority list.  We have set some very high goals this year and with your support we will achieve them.

2016 Goals:
– 100% participation of Kolter families, board, teachers, and staff

– Raise $50,000

Your generous contribution will be used to fund needs such as these*:

  • Basketball goals for the blacktop
  • A laptop for each classroom
  • Outdoor beautification in the front of the school and courtyard
  • Resurfacing the blacktop
  • New mural in lobby
  • Art program resources and supplies
