Consider becoming a PTO member!
The Johns Adam PTO sponsors many activities for students such as school assemblies, field trips, dance events, memory book, student recognition, book fair, and numerous other events throughout the school year. We cannot be successful in any of our endeavors without your support. There are many different ways you can help us. You can either chair a committee or become an active member of a committee, or assist remotely for events that can be managed from home. You can give ideas for new events or ways in which we can make the school year more exciting for the students. We understand free time is hard to come by, but if we all are all able to squeeze out just a few hours each year for our children, we will be able to ensure that the new school year will be fun and enriching. What the students gain from all of us working together is priceless!
We encourage all parents to join the PTO and attend the meetings to share your vision and ideas. The dates and times of the meetings will be posted on the website as well as emailed to those on the PTO mailing list. Make sure that you include your email when signing up for membership so we can include you on our list. Our meetings are informal and informative, allowing for everyone’s views to be heard. Please come and help the PTO make decisions to enrich your child’s educational experience.
The purpose of the PTO is to aid the students of JAMS by providing the funds for extra programs (educational and recreational) that supplement the JAMS experience. It is a given that fundraisers not only become an added expense, but also another thing to do. However, they are necessary so that we can continue to provide our children with the extras. We will be sending home a list of new fundraisers soon and approximate dates of when they will be coming home. Please mark your calendar and participate in these events. If you are unable to do so, consider the Opt-out program.
Our Opt-out program kicks off the first day of school and continues throughout the entire school year. This program allows parents to make a direct tax-deductible donation to the PTO in lieu of fundraising. Contributions also qualify for company-matching programs; just send in the paperwork and we'll take care of the rest.
We hope everyone has a safe and happy school year. Should you have any questions feel free to contact the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your participation is crucial and we hope you will join us!
President, JAMS PTO
On behalf of the JAMS PTO Board
