PTO Wants Help!

Hello Comrades – We are super excited to start really working to improve our student’s school spirit and sense of community! We’ve already started planning events to get everyone involved. We feel the PTO can play a big role in helping our kids enjoy school! We’re asking you to help in any aspect you feel comfortable. Our first event is next week – Movie and Popcorn after school. If you feel energetic, we are asking for bake-sale type items. The popcorn has already been provided and all the drinks have been donated! All we need are baked goodies (or store bought)! The movie (Hop) is next Thursday, March 29 from 2:30–5. If you can stay we would be more than happy to have the extra help. If you can make it to a PTO meeting that would also be great. Ideas, suggestions and help are always needed. Thanks in advance for your help!

Ideas for the future:

Ice Cream Social
Track & Field Day
Fall Carnival
Monthly Lunch Snacks
School Store
Community Outreach Projects
Talent Show
Corn Hole Tournaments
