Generously portioned, resealable bags of this great product range from only $5 – $7 per bag, so they’re priced great, they taste amazing, and they make great gifts (Christmas is coming faster than we’re ready to admit!). With a 50% profit on each bag, your help and encouragement puts us well on the way to continuing to fund the wonderful field trips your child/children enjoy so much, as well as many other activities, events (Santa’s Workshop!), and other plans that benefit and support both the students and their school community. Please help us continue to enrich students lives in as many ways as possible, because these memories will stay with your child/children for years to come.
You’ll be able to sample some of the delicious flavors at the PTO Refreshment Table tonight. Selling will continue until Wednesday, October 14, 2015, so please spread the word about this great fundraiser!
Be sure to stop at the PTO Refreshment Table for a sample of some of the flavors available* for our Pittsburgh Popcorn fundraiser – a guaranteed hit with family, friends and more! – that starts this week.
* Wisconsin Cheddar, Chocolate Caramel and Peanut Butter Cup
The first meeting of the PTO for the 2015-2016 year is tomorrow, Tuesday, September 1st, at 6 p.m.
We hope to see you there!
I hope you had an amazing summer with your children and that you never took a minute for granted. Let me take a quick moment to introduce myself. I am the new President of the Commodore Perry PTO. This is my first year in the seat, last year I was VP. I have one child going into the second grade and my youngest will be ready to attend next year. So, I will be here for a while, if you will have me.
I am very proud to be a part of this school as well as this organization. There is so much that we do for our children and the list of what we want to do is endless!! We would love for you to be a part of it. We hope to make some changes this year and of course, we will not be able to do any of it without your help. That means we need some of your time and we need some of your ideas. We do have a few things in the works that will help us raise the money we need to send our children on fun and fantastic field trips, rewards, surprises, events and thank yous for our amazing teachers. Many of these require very little fundraising. This may blow your mind, but even “PTO MOMS” hate fundraising! However, in a rural area like ours, it is important that we go above and beyond to give our children experiences that will help them grow, help them see what else there is. We don’t have the resources to do that the way larger schools do. Our children are in a wonderful district, where teachers go above and beyond for them, but education is not limited to PSSA scores. We want our children to be excited about school. We want them, not only to make good grades, but make great memories. That’s where we come in.
Attached you will find our budget for this coming year. This is the list of things that PTO does each and every year, we would like to add to this list. Please join us Tuesday, September 1st at 6 p.m. In the elementary library. Refreshments will be provided. We are ready to hear all of your thoughts and we can’t wait to have you hear our plans for the future.
Thank you for your time,
CP PTO President
