These programs include various fundraisers and events; such as Scholastic Book Fair, educational programs; Scholastic News for Kids and supporting the Sage Garden Project. Toler PTA also provides transportation for field trips, funds special assemblies, family nights, Teacher Grants, Staff Appreciation, and School Spirit Wear.
