Forest Ridge PTA is on Amazon Smile

The Forest Ridge PTA is now officially a member of Amazon Smile!  Amazon Smile is a program on that gives a percentage of purchases to a designated non-profit.
Please go to and select Forest Ridge PTA as your beneficiary, then when you shop the PTA gets a percentage of every sale, at no cost to you!  Please see the easy instructions below, and be sure to tell everyone you know!
The money raised by our PTA goes directly to helping the children of District 142- each year our PTA works to fundraise a total of $16,000 each year for District 142’s schools ($4,000 each). That money is used to fund after school activities, assemblies, field trips and more!  Without the PTA our schools would be a much bleaker place for our students- in fact, when compared with other nearby districts, our children have many more opportunities and activities in their schools as a direct result of our Parent Teacher Association!
