You may wonder what specifically happens to money that you donate to the PTO.  There are many different ways that the PTO supports the school, teachers and children that you might not realize.  Here are just a few ways that your PTO membership fee or donation is used to improve our children’s education.
  • Filling teacher and staff requests for items needed in the classroom
  • Cafeteria, office and medical supplies not covered by general education fun
  • General landscaping of the school grounds
  • Providing technology needs for children and teachers
  • Providing for family spirit activities such as Spirit Night at Summit High school, Family Dance and Movie Night
  • Supporting activities such as kindergarten celebration and 5th grade celebration
  • Providing teacher morale through such items as teacher water cooler supplies and lunches during teacher work sessions.
  • Providing vests for Safety Patrol
  • PTO Benevolence fund providing for individual needs of children
  • Special projects – for 2016/17 the special project goal will be to provide for a new STEM Lab.  We purchased about $8000 worth of material to stock the lab with exciting things for the kids to encourage hands on learning, including Lego classroom kits, Science Kits, and Microscopes.
