Warrior Fund Challenge 2022
We encourage every family to donate what you can, whether that is $2, $20, $200, or $2,000! Every dollar directly supports Ludlow-Taylor, and our goal is for 75% of families to contribute.
And this year, the grade level with the highest overall rate of participation during the week of Giving Tuesday will get to...
Silly string Principal Miller at the Holiday Concert!
All you have to do is donate at ANY AMOUNT between November 27 - December 3 (make sure you indicate your student’s grade level if you are donating in person or by check). The entire grade that has the highest percentage of families participating will win the silly string prize.
Thank you to brave Principal Miller for her school spirit, and thank you in advance to Ludlow-Taylor families for your support!
Where do donations to the Warrior Fund go?
Did you know that every year the Ludlow-Taylor PTO supports our school with funding for fun activities and curriculum needs that the regular DCPS budget does not cover? This year the PTO is planning to support Ludlow-Taylor with nearly $143,000 that will be spent on programs that benefit every child across every grade, including events, teacher supplies and other requests, and aftercare.
These important contributions to Ludlow-Taylor come mainly from the generous support of our families and community.
In years past, the PTO revenue has come from:
The support of every family in our community helps make Ludlow-Taylor an academically engaging and nurturing space for our children. Thank you for all you have given of your time and in donations.
