President's Message

Happy Halloween Stoller -


As the smell of rain is in the air and days get shorter, the Stoller PTO is focused on collecting your contributions that will help support the 2017-18 PTO Budget. Please take a moment and read though this newsletter to see the different ways you can give.


Remember to check out the Stoller PTO web page. You can access it thought the Stoller Middle School Website under the Parents & Students tab.

Write A Check!

Have you contributed to Stoller PTO's Write-A-Check campaign yet? It's our "One and Done" fundraiser and we need YOUR participation! Our goal is $15,000 and we've currently raised just over $9,000.


The suggested contribution is $25 per student but if you can give more, please do! There are 2 ways to contribute:

1. Contribute online: https://mkt.com/stoller-parent-teacher-organization-inc…
2. Write a check: Write a check made out to Stoller PTO and turn it in to the front office (please note: checks made out to Stoller will not go towards PTO)


Many companies match donation funds- please check with your Human Resources Department for your company matching policy. You must designate "Stoller PTO" when choosing who the matching funds will go to, not just "Stoller".


*A common misconception is that Stoller 5K funds go to the PTO but they do not- those funds go exclusively to PE/Health Department and do not count towards the PTO's Write-A-Check goals. Your Stoller PTO contributions fund programs at Stoller such as Art Lit, Renaissance Faire, classroom libraries, technology and more. Without your support, these programs will cease to exist.


THANK YOU for your participation!
