PARENTS + EDUCATORS = PTO Supporting the education of students at Asheville High School and SILSA by fostering positive relationships among the schools, their teachers, and parents.
To all parent volunteers: We appreciate your signing up to contribute to the faculty/staff lunch this Wednesday. However, due to the winter storm and missed school days this week, the PTO has consulted with school administration and has decided to postpone the lunch to February.
If you have already purchased gift cards, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to have the PTO hold them until the rescheduled event, or you can hold onto them and turn them in later.
We apologize to anyone who has already prepared or purchased food items for the lunch, and we hope you will be able to sign up again in February.
Also, most likely due to weather preparations, we had a lower than expected parent participation rate in this event. We are so appreciative of your willingness to step forward, and we hope you will sign up again and encourage others to sign up when we announce the rescheduled event.
Thank you for all you do for our teachers!

Dear PTO, I would like to take the time to tell you how much, we teachers, appreciate your lovely luncheons and the fun raffles. It is so nice to feel taken care of once in a while, and your dishes are always prepared with so much love (the secret ingredient!). You are the most active PTO I have ever encountered, and I am impressed by all your hard work, and the time you give to our schools." -Asheville High Teacher
