It's a Brand New Year!

August 20, 2018

The summer has raced by once again – we hope you all enjoyed healthy, happy, fun-filled (& some lazy) summer days and are ready to embrace the 2018-19 school year!

 

The PTO Board members are excited to kick-off another year of fundraising activities to support our kids and our school. We hope you can join in by donating your time, talents, or other resources to ensure our planned activities are successful and we achieve our financial goals for the school year.

 

The Smyrna Elementary School PTO is planning to raise over $25,000 in funds this year. We plan to raise the money via the following major events: Fall Book Fair,Santa Shop, Family Fun Events, Color Run, and Box Tops. .

 

Its a big job, but based on our history & previous dedicated PTO volunteers, we raised over $33,000 last school year, so our mission IS possible, with help from parents like YOU!

 

lease check back often for volunteer opportunities! Thanks & have a fantastic start to your school year!

 

 

FUTURE EVENTS

Winter Book Fair

SES Library, February 2016

After a wildy successful Fall Book Fair, we will be holding a second "for profit" bookfair in winter of 2016. We are targeting February, but are still working with Scholastic and the school administration to solidify a date.

 

Fall Book Fair Update

The PTO held a raffle to benefit our teachers and their classrooms in which they created "Wish List" baskets and loaded them with books they'd like for their classroom libraries. Because the interest and turnout was so overwhelming, the PTO awarded TWO $50 Scholastic Bucks certificates to 2 lucky teachers for classroom book purchases.  The PTO also purchased over $130 worth of books for classroom libraries. Almost $50 in loose change was collected for the library to use towards book purchases!

 

Also, the PTO is working to build up our parent email database, so as an incentive to provide email addresses, we offered a book fair gift certificate as a raffle prize for all who submitted their email addresses. We awarded one student a $20 Scholastic Bucks gift certificate for winning that email drive contest.

 

Congratulations to our teacher winners:

Mrs. Fardoulis (1st Grade)

Mrs. Newman (3rd Grade)

 

and to our student winner:

Kindergartener, Makenzi W!
