Sparta Fund Requests Now Accepted!

The Sparta Fund was created to help fill in the gaps the result from state funding cuts. Anyone can make a Sparta Fund request (faculty, staff, parent, student) as long as they are a member of PTSA. Last year, Sparta Fund paid everything from art easels to chemistry equipment to computers to helping teachers pay for continuing education that would directly benefit Stratford students. We have a budget, so make your request sooner rather than later! And ask for the moon. We can’t promise anything, but you won’t have a chance of getting it unless you ask! Requests are approved based upon the cost and contribution to Stratford PTSA’s mission to enhance excellence in the education, health and welfare for the students of Stratford High School. Go to the Sparta Fund tab in the PTSA website to get all the details and make your request!
