What PTA does

The Jason Lee PTA fundraisers support events during the school year.  We also save up for large and expensive projects that will benefit the children and teachers at Jason Lee Elementary for many years.

2014-2015 Outdoor Pavilion

Gale-Rew Construction spearheaded our Pavilion project with PTA Member extraordinaire, Sharon Nield. They helped us get affordable bids from contractors, donated their time and man hours to help us build our pavilion! Metalfab provided the metal at a super discount.  American Rock Products donated all of the concrete.  The kids enjoy having a shady spot to rest at recess.  Thank you!
