Hello from the Fugett PTO!
The PTO hopes you had a smooth first week of school!
Below is the PTO information from last week in case you didn't get a chance to review it. We will also have a table at the Open Houses so stop by and say "Hi."
Below is some general PTO information followed by our current volunteer opportunities:
To join our online directory please visit link below. There is no fee to access it and once you enter your information, you will be able to view the online directory.
We do not require PTO membership fees, but we do collect donations. Your support allows us to provide funding for grade level activities, assemblies, National History Day, Drama Club, Field Days, 8th Grade Picnic, Fright Night, and much more. We will have other instances when we request donated goods/gift cards throughout the year, but this is the only time we will ask you for a monetary donation. We suggest a minimum family donation of $20 but appreciate you being as generous as you can!
Donations can be made through the following:
FRIGHT NIGHT: Our major volunteer need at this moment is for Fright Night Co-Chairs/Chair. This is our main fundraiser of the year and is scheduled for October 28th. For those of you who are new to Fugett, this is a ticketed evening event that takes place at the school and includes a haunted house/pizza and snacks/DJ. This event is a well-oiled machine and all of the subcommittee chairs have been filled. The main job of the Chair is to communicate with committees, volunteers, and staff to coordinate and to confirm everything is getting done. This position comes with very detailed instructions. We love this yearly event, but will have to cancel it this year if we cannot find someone to help us lead it. If you are interested or if you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
LUNCH: Another fun volunteer opportunity is helping at the school store during the students' lunch periods. Please click the link below for more information and to sign up.
VOLUNTEER FORM: If neither of these opportunities are right for you, but you would love to volunteer in the future, please take a moment and fill out our volunteer form here.
