The INVEST in MOORE campaign is usually unveiled at the PTO Open house but our best laid plans have been interrupted by…. a Pandemic.  INVEST in MOORE is one way you can join the tradition of excellence at JT Moore Middle School. This annual campaign is the school’s largest fundraising effort. Due to limited funding from MNPS, INVEST in MOORE is essential to many of the programs offered at JT Moore. The INVEST in MOORE campaign is incredibly meaningful each year, supporting our operating budget and providing the funding that enable us to fulfill a wide range of needs, including those that are unanticipated.

Right now, the INVEST in MOORE campaign will help the school immeasurably as we meet increased needs to make critically important changes to our school to ensure the health and safety of our community for this next year.  Our school needs, although somewhat different, cannot be met without your support. The JT Moore team is committed to raising well-rounded students who are prepared for high school and beyond.  The leadership and financial support that parents and the PTO provide ensures that we can continue to grow and thrive as a beloved community school.

This year’s target goal is to raise $100,000. Two very important areas of funding will be:

  • Items and initiatives to help as we transition at some point to in-person learning, including the enhancement of outdoor learning spaces, hand sanitizing stations, additional personnel to screen students, additional person and additional desks to promote social distancing.
  • A portion of the salary of our full-time counselor and social worker who works with the school’s most at-risk students.

Last year, our INVEST in MOORE campaign raised over $140,000 that helped purchase equipment and materials for classrooms, clubs, drama, and sports programs. Your donations funded the purchase of thousands of novels for school-wide literacy initiative, READ MOORE! The generosity of our parents, grandparents, and neighbors also funded 25% of Mrs. Penny Howard’s salary as part of her full-time counseling and social work with our most at-risk students. We need your help again this year. We will go back to school in person at some point, and our needs, although somewhat different, cannot be met without your help.  No donation is too small, and every financial donation is tax deductible.
