Welcome Back... VIRTUALLY
Here's hoping the start of the 2020-2021 school year has been manageable, so far. We know everyone has much to juggle, between school, work and other responsibilities. Hang in there!
Though we're not back in-person, your PTO is still hard at work providing support to our school community. A few initiatives we've tackled so far include providing small stipends to help teachers set up home office/work areas, funding welcome lunches for staff as well as T-shirts for new staff and new students. We are working hard to plan virtual events that will support our community going forward (more details to come).
As a nonprofit PTO (vs. PTA), we don't collect membership dues, which means you are automatically a member and invited to participate as you choose!
- Join monthly meetings (3rd Tuesdays each month, check the calendar for more info)
- Volunteer your time (reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how)
- Become a room parent (email your teacher to see if one is still needed)
We do rely on both fundraising events and donations to support our students, teachers and programming. With in-person fundraisers at a standstill, for the time being, you can become a "Friend of F.Ave" and donate today.
Looking forward to making this a successful year. It's gonna' be one to remember!
