Thank You PTO!

Fathers n' Flashlights

When Pope opened, it was my vision that our PTO incorporate family involvement fundraisers. They took this concept and ran with it, from Boo Bash to Fathers n' Flashlights. This team of volunteers has put in hundreds of volunteer hours and at the expense of their family time. They do this because they love the school, our students, and the community.

As a result of their hard work, I am placing an order for $30,000 worth of books and literacy materials that will be in your students hands, We are currently waiting for our $15,000 order of Chromebooks. In addition, they have given us funds for the playground and recess equipment, math manipulatives, book shelves, easels, teacher training, student rewards, and much, much, more. Your student directly benefits from all they do.

I ask that you take a minute to thank the PTO volunteers that you see working this weekend. I wish I could name them all individually; but Vicki Molina, Denise Maza and Anna Wood have done an incredible job pulling this huge event together. They have gone above and beyond to make this event special for our fathers and their children. Hats off!

I ask that if you have not volunteered or been a part of an event committee that you sign up. It's a great way to give back and give some relief to our volunteers who have not stopped since our first day as a school. Words can not express the appreciation and gratitude we feel for all the volunteers and their families.

We all want these great events at Pope. In order for them to continue, we need you!
