 Meet Our PTO Executive Board

WHAT WE DO
The PTO supports the teachers, students and families of Memorial Elementary School.  We foster the growth of the Memorial Community by volunteering our time to hold several social functions each year.  We raise money by collecting dues and organizing several fundraising events.  Money raised is used to support the teachers, students, families and all programs at the School.  The PTO also organizes volunteers for field trips and all school related events.   

PTO Meetings are held on one Thursday every month.  7:00 PM - 8:15 PM in the Memorial School Library.  Everyone is welcome.  Come by and see what it's all about.


Each Year the Memorial School PTO raises approximately  $18,000 to support the needs of the school.  

Here are some of the ways we raise funds each year:

  • PTO Enrollment ($20/family)
  • Donations from families
  • Scrips Gift Card Program
  • Jog-a-Thon
  • Spring Picnic Raffle
  • Toast to Memorial Silent Auction
PTO Volunteers organize all social functions for the school, enabling kids to spend time outside of the classroom to build relationships.  Parents are also given the opportunity to come together, strengthen friendships and foster school community.  

Here are some of  the events we plan each year:

  • Kindergarten Story Time 
  • Back to School Night
  • Halloween Party 
  • Pizza Movie Night
  • Ice Cream Socials 
  • Family Picnic
  • DARE Graduation 
  • 5th Grade Moving Up Ceremony

Enrichment
The PTO supports educational programs that come to Memorial to reinforce what is being taught in the classroom.  Children in all grades benefit from these programs which include author visits, music, science and weather programs and various artist visits.  

Field Trips
We subsidize the cost of hiring buses for class field trips throughout the year.  Each class is provided with a free bus ride for one of their educational field trips each year compliments of the PTO.

This committee plans all extra curricular events at the school.  Ice Cream Socials, Family Picnic, Pizza Movie Night are just a few examples where kids and parents are getting together at the school just for fun!

Fifth Grade Committee
The PTO supports the 5th Grade Memory Book and all moving up activities associated with the 5th grade class.


Field Day 
We provide the bounce house for this momentous occasion, and volunteers get to see the kids enjoy going from station to station and competing against each other for fun.

Teacher Appreciation and Hospitality
We subsidize coffee for the teachers.  On the first Thursday of each month, we ask volunteers to sign up to bring in goodies for the morning in appreciation for the teachers’ efforts each and every day.  Also, each year we welcome new parents to the school with refreshments and an information packet.  We also provide refreshments after most evening events that are scheduled at Memorial.

Miscellaneous
From landscaping to subscriptions, retirement gifts to supplies, we are here to support our school in any way we're able.
