Your Smithton PTO would like to welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year. Some of you may not know what the PTO is about. We are an organization comprised of any adult family member of a student currently enrolled in Smithton School, as well as all staff, faculty, and administration members of the school.
The PTO consists of a board and the members. The board this year is as follows:
President – Terrinda Miller
Vice President – Holly Frazee
Secretary – Angela DeHaven
Treasurer – Karen Hill
The members are YOU! Without the members the PTO would not exist. For the PTO to be effectiveand truly representative of the school, it is essential to have involvement from as many parents, staff,faculty, and administrators as possible.
Many working parents feel that they cannot be included in the PTO because they cannot come toevery meeting or be at the school during the day. Whatever time your schedule allows, the SmithtonPTO always appreciates your help. Keep in mind that by volunteering you will get to enjoy interactingwith the kids, become friends with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference.
During the year we have 4 major fundraisers: Discount cards, Fall/Winter Concession Stand, SpringCarnival & Box Tops. These bring in the funds to help us provide programs & support for the school.Last year we were able to help support and/or pay for Field Trips, the Accelerated Reading Program,sets of Mark Twain Award nominee books for the 4th, 5th, & 6th grades, 4 College Scholarships, FineArts & Sports Banquet, and much more.
Volunteering doesn’t mean a huge time commitment. An hour or two here and there makes a bigdifference. We have jobs to fit your time schedule and interest. We even have tasks that don’t involvecoming to the school at all. Won’t you join us? It’s easy and it really makes a difference.
