PTO will host the Valentine Pizza Lunch on 2/14.
Thank you to all who participated in the Scholastic Book Fair! We appreciate your help raising funds for the teachers and students!! Thank you to the volunteers who came and supported Priscilla Garcia, our Chair of the event. Especially, Mesha Barlow and Debbie Fuehrmeyer who ran the show when Priscilla could not. PTO’s programs run smoothly because of the volunteers who give their time.
Remember to clip, save and send in your Box Tops!! Tammy McMahon has been working hard organizing and submitting them.
In the upcoming weeks we will announce a PTO Meeting date. For the last couple of years I have been organizing the events and programs and then with the help of the office and volunteers running them. It is past time to regroup and rebuild the board.
PTO stands for Parent-Teacher Organization, consisting of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students. We support school staff, help promote student self-esteem, and assist in efforts to solve school needs through volunteering and funding. But, in order to do all that we need the support of the parents. Below is the outline for the board roles.
