100% Panther Pride

Fundraising Campaign

Dear Orange Grove Family,

As parents, our children’s education is one of our highest priorities. We are fortunate our children attend Orange Grove because of its high academic standards and the educational enrichment programs that cannot be found in other schools. Although Orange Grove is a public school funded through our state taxes, educational funding in the state of Arizona is insufficient to finance many of the enrichment programs and materials we desire in order to better prepare our children for the competitive global workplace. That is where our Family Faculty Organization (FFO) steps in to help.

Through the generosity of OGMS parents, the FFO has been able to provide students and teachers with learning opportunities and resources to ensure that OGMS remains a top-notch educational institution competitive with the high-priced private & charter schools in the area.

Last year, the FFO enhanced OGMS by subsidizing the following:

  • Science Materials and Supplies
  • Support for Band
  • $200/Teacher Supplies Reimbursement
  • Art Posters & Supplies
  • Smart Music Subscription (Band)
  • 6th grade IXL Math Licenses
  • Naviance
  • Staff Retreat
  • Parking Lot Signs
  • Backpacks for Incoming 5th Graders
  • Pizza Lunch for New Students
  • Monthly Staff Appreciation Events
  • Science Materials and Supplies
  • Support for Band
  • Modernizing Pods
  • Microwave for Commons
  • Positive Behavior Support Supplies
  • Bitstrips Subscription
  • Commission School Song
  • Playground Balls
  • Retirement Footprint Tree & Memory Bench
  • iPad Apps Workshop
  • National Geography Bee & Math Counts Registration Fee
  • Scope Magazine & Scholastic Magazine Subscriptions for Art, English, and Social Studies
  • Starbuck’s Cards and Other Tokens of Appreciation for Staff and Teachers

We rely on your continued commitment to contribute to provide these important resources to our children.

You might have experienced direct donation suggestions from other schools in of $50 to $100 per student or family, but for the 100% Panther Pride Campaign, we are focused instead on 100% participation.

We value all contributions, whether they are $5 or $500, and will use them to enrich your child’s excelling education at OGMS.

How to donate:

  • Cash or check (payable to “Orange Grove Middle School FFO”) placed in orange envelopes available in the office, or any envelope clearly marked “Panther Pride Donation”.
  • Via a Square credit card reader available at Registration for Donations.
  • Directly on this site, via the Donate button below to make a Panther Pride Donation.
