What are your favorite memories of Elementary School? Besides special teachers who made learning fun, what stands out in your mind? Class parties? Field trips? School-wide festivals? Don't you want your child to enjoy the same fun experiences?
You can make sure these and many other exciting activities are included on the school calendar by joining and being active in the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
The PTO is a group of parents, just like you, who want to be involved in their children's elementary school experience. Headed by a volunteer Board of Officers, the members of the PTO work with teachers and school administrators to enhance the school's programs and learning environment.
We do this by organizing a number of fund raising events throughout the school year. These include school dances, the Fall and Spring Festivals, as well as other activities. The whole community is invited to participate, not just those affiliated with the school. The money raised at these events enables the administration to buy additional items and equipment for our kids. In the past, the PTO raised funds which the school used to purchase curtains for the stage, iPads and other classroom technology.
The PTO enhances the school program in many ways that don't involve raising money. We are classroom parents, field trip chaperones, speakers for career day, volunteers who plan and manage school events. When the administration needs "people power", they call the PTO!
We want ALL parents to share the Reidville Elementary School experience with their children! Everyone has talents we can use and fresh ideas that will benefit the school and the students. Share yours!
It's easy to join the PTO. Stop by our table at Meet the Teacher Night. Speak with your child's homeroom teacher. Ask in the school's front office. You can also email us firstname.lastname@example.org or reach us through the PTO page on the school’s website. We'll enter your contact information into our database, so you will be notified about all upcoming events and needs for volunteers.
We look forward meeting and working with each of you! Together, let's make the 2014/20154 PTO the most active one yet!
