Schmucker PTO Newsletter

August 2018

From the President

Welcome all new and returning Schmucker families!

After a summer that passed all too quickly, the PTO is excited to be planning and organizing for a fun, productive year at SMS. We appreciate all the continued support from our administration, Mrs. Dean-Null and Mr. Fry, and offer a special welcome to new Assistant Principal Krystin Martin.

With your assistance, last year the SMS PTO was able to offer several experiences that would not have been possible through the regular school budget including field trips, the 5 Star program and classroom and student activity support. We aim to do the same and even more this year. Look for us at Schedule Pick Up days and Meet and Greets, keep reading our newsletter, and follow us on Facebook. Our first meeting is Thursday, September 6 at 1:00 pm at SMS. Share your talents and enthusiasm and enrich your child's middle school years at Schmucker!

1. Labels and Coupons:

Look for these labels and coupons on products you buy. Cut and send them in to school with your student. These can be turned into any teacher or the front office. These can actually help Schmucker PTO raise hundreds of dollars!!

- Box Tops For Education coupons are easy to clip and are worth $0.10 each. That may not seem like much, but they sure add up! Be sure to check expiration dates!
