THANK YOU

A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who attended, fundraised, volunteered and/or participated in anything PTO related this year! We appreciate you and value our families/school community so much! We welcome our 2022-2023 Executive Board & Committee members and look forward to planning for August and beyond.


PS - In honor of this year's 5th Grade graduating class, the PTO made a generous contribution to the Bounce Childrens foundation to purchase materials for the entire school to use for today's Helping Hands Day. Additionally, we purchased this inflatable Penguin to draw some fun and photo ops at future events.


Sincerely,

Katie Glick & Tara Goldfarb - coPresidents & the 2021-2022 PTO Executive Board

Helping Hands Day -THANK YOU

Thank you to our volunteers for helping make Helping Hands Day a success! The students learned about the Bounce Children's Foundation and were involved in creating kits of activities that will help brighten the lives of chronically ill local children.


In honor of Memorial Day, students will also be writing letters/messages of appreciation to our troops to thank them for their service. The PTO will be sending these letters to A Million Thanks, an organization who will forward them to active military members on our behalf.

Yearbooks are here !!!

For those that purchased yearbooks, students will receive them in class the last week of school.


If no yearbook was purchased, students will still receive something to have students/teachers autograph.


If you want to purchase a yearbook, we have a limited amount available. Please contact Abby Bruggeman (abbybruggeman@gmail.com) as soon as possible to purchase a yearbook.


Yearbooks are $20 - cash or a check made out to South Park PTO.
