PTO Welcome Letter
The PTO would like to welcome everyone to Montana Street Magnet School for the 2016-2017 school year. We hope you had a nice summer and are ready for a great new school year. One of our goals this year is to increase family participation in all school activities. We will be letting each of you know about new ways to get involved in the PTO, but the first step is to register to be a PTO member; your involvement is vital.
Our family contribution fund-raising plan is one that works very well each year. Each family is asked to contribute a minimum of $50.00 per school year. If you cannot contribute the entire amount at one time, please contribute what you can when you can throughout the school year. If you are able to contribute more then please feel free to do so-- it is tax deductible and certainly a good contribution. This is our initial fund-raising effort. Please feel free to return your family contribution with your PTO registration form if you wish to do so. Thank you in advance for helping our school.
PTO is including a sign up sheet to help parents decide what committees to work with in order to get volunteer credit hours. The PTO sponsors many activities where parents may fulfill their 10 hour commitment, but that is not the only way. There are many activities you can share with your child or volunteer at the school in order to fulfill your commitment.
Your volunteer card will be sent home weekly in your child's take home folder so please keep track of your time and record it weekly. We hope this will make it more convenient and less stressful to fulfill your mandatory 10 hour commitment.
School Website Information
We strongly encourage all PTO members and parents to please check out the school's website. This is a great way to keep up with current events, as well as reviewing your child's grades and homework assignments.
