The 2017 P.R.I.D.E. Drive was a Success!



The P.R.I.D.E. Drive is the PTA’s once-a-year, nothing-to-sell, no-event-to-attend fundraiser.  We raised 95% of our $13,000 goal Donations support our kids as they develop their P.R.I.D.E =  Personal responsibility, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Excellence.  This is the PTA's main fundraiser.

This fundraiser will purchase classroom materials, bring in authors, upgrade science equipment, make history come alive with memorable performers, underwrite grade level socials, build the values of P.R.I.D.E. with programs and assemblies and more.

New donors of
$50+ will receive this exclusive “ERMS has P.R.I.D.E.” car magnet.  These are only available to P.R.I.D.E. Drive donors and are our thanks to you.  We hope you will use it to show your PRIDE in your student!  The car magnets have been mailed to eligible donors.


Again this year, 200 ERMS families joined together to fund enrichment. Soon, we will be posting the list of donors to recognize them for their support.
