Anchored in Learning: Staton Sails for Excellence
Staton PTO 2019-20
The PTO helps to make Staton Elementary School a better school in two ways:
1.We raise money by holding fundraisers like Pioneer Events, the Staton raffle and the Fun Run. Money that goes toward class size reduction, the Tech Lab rotation, classroom materials, and technology upgrades. We work with the Staton staff to make sure our kids have the resources and materials they need to succeed.
2.We show up. Picnic In the Park, Trunk or Treat, Spring Event, Donuts with Dad, Muffins for Mom, etc.— these are all events planned and staffed by PTO volunteers. Activities that give the kids a chance to have fun and make some great memories.
We understand that time is a parent’s most precious commodity, so we don’t want to waste yours. Sign up and help support our events and stay informed. We’ll let you know what’s going on and what volunteer time is needed but only sign up if you are available and/or interested.
And although you aren’t required to attend the monthly PTO meetings, everyone is welcome. We meet the second Friday of the month at 8:35 am.
Bonus: PTO members receive a PTO/staff directory – perfect for arranging parties or playdates and keeping in touch with classmates during winter break or in the summer! The 2019-20 PTO directory will be emailed to members in November 2019. New PTO members may request a copy of last year’s directory anytime.
