The Jefferson Elementary PTO would like to welcome all new and returning students and families back to school! For those who may not know, the PTO is an organization of parents and teachers at Jefferson Elementary School. The PTO’s goal is to foster a nurturing and caring environment that strives for continued parent involvement in helping build a better educational environment for our children. We also promote a school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work with the resources we can provide and help make school fun.
Through fundraising efforts, the PTO can donate funds to purchase educational materials and equipment for the school as well as be involved in efforts to help the local community. For the PTO to be effective and truly representative of the school, it is essential to have parental involvement from as many parents as possible. Many working parents feel they cannot be included in the PTO because they cannot attend every meeting or be at school during the day. There are endless possibilities in ways you can help. Whatever your level of flexibility, Jefferson Elementary PTO always appreciates their parent volunteers, as does our teachers and staff. Keep in mind that by volunteering, you will get to enjoy interacting with the kids, become friends with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference. Whether you have 30 minutes or a couple of hours, your ideas, your time, and your talents are truly needed. We can match your time constraints and interests to needed tasks. We have many ways in which Moms, Dads, Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents can contribute.
Please consider volunteering, it does make a difference in the lives of our children! As the year progresses and the committees come together, committee chairpersons will contact you by phone and/or e-mail. See first-hand how the students benefit from so many programs and all of our / your hard work. Please come along and join us - this is your PTO and as a member, you can help us achieve these goals. We need your ideas and your energy. We need you!
Thanks so much – JES PTO
