The Stay-At-Home Fundraiser is the PTO's primary fundraiser. Information on the PTO and the fundraiser and a donation card are mailed to all parents in late October. We ask that you consider how important these funds are to teachers and students and give what you can. With your generosity, in 2018-19 we distributed almost $10,000 in grants, teacher supplies and guidance. We hope to continue our tradition of of funding mini-grants and other important activities with your help, including:
• Awarding mini grants (~$500 each) to teachers for materials or activities to enrich class-rooms such as curricula book sets, lab materials, guest speakers, scholarships and
• Championing our teachers with advocacy events, purchasing supplies and supply drives.
• Collaborating on PARENT U classes.
• Supporting class orientations, fall/spring curriculum nights and honor roll incentives.
• Keeping parents informed with the PTO website and social media pages.
• Coordinating monthly teacher/staff appreciation events.
• Funding Counseling Center needs to aid students in crisis.
