Parent Teacher Organiztion
Our PTO contributes a great deal to our children’s learning experience. We encourage you to get involved in our fund-raising programs and attend parent meetings. The PTO assists with field trips and supporting our special events such as the Christmas program, fund-raisers, special guest performances, book fair, and our school picnic.
Volunteers are needed in many areas for school events. Please watch your Monday Morning News e-mail for scheduled events and updates. A paper copy is always posted on the bulletin board outside the office. We appreciate your help!
Each family is required to pay $25.00 in PTO dues once a year, which helps to subsidize field trips, activities and special events. The field trip/activity fee charged to families does not cover the entire expense incurred.
Fees for trips and events are due at registration. A permission card must be on file in the school office and fees paid for your child to participate. We travel by walking, chartered bus, or parent vehicles.
Each child will need to wear a school T-shirt or sweatshirt on outside school field trips. T-Shirts may be ordered at the beginning of the year.
Parent volunteers are usually welcome to accompany us on field trips, though in some situations this may not be possible. Our insurance requires that we keep a copy of all volunteers’ drivers’ licenses in our files. Siblings are invited to in-house events only.
