The revenue raised by the Cash Calendar Fundraiser provides the PTA with the opportunity to continue to support Technology Enhancements, Enrichment Programs, Otis Ski Lesson Program, Screen-Free Week Activities, Field Day, Staff Appreciation Week, Butternut Tubing and more. We are always looking for new ways to support the educational experience of our children at Farmington River School!
