Welcome to the Claysville Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
Did you know just by having a student here at
Claysville Elementary, that you are already a member of our PTO!? We work in partnership with our Principal, Ms.
Fleck, Assistant Principal, Mr. Barr, and all of the teachers and faculty here at
Claysville Elementary School to enhance each and every student’s elementary school
experience. Please consider volunteering with us! The information below that describes some of the PTO volunteer opportunities. With
everyone’s participation, we can make this a great school year!

We Look Forward To Working With You!
Book Fair: The Book Fair is a week-long event in September
and March. We also have a BOGO Book Fair during May. Students will visit the
Book Fair during their Library class and will have the opportunity to purchase
books with money brought from home. The
PTO also provides one free book per student during our Fall and Spring Book
Fairs. Parent volunteers are needed to assist the students with book selection,
restock, and to straighten books throughout
Fundraiser Deliveries and Pickup: Parent volunteers are needed
to help sort and fill orders for Otis Spunkmeyer Pizza and Cookie Dough, Sarris
Candies, and Seasonal Flowers. Due to the size of the fundraisers and the need
for some items to be kept frozen, several volunteers are needed in order to get
the orders filled in a timely manner.
Holiday Shoppe: The Holiday Shoppe gives the students an opportunity to purchase their own gifts for their family members and pets. Students will bring money from home and will visit the Holiday Shoppe during their class’s designated time. The Holiday Shoppe is a service the PTO provides for the students and is NOT a
fundraiser. Many parent volunteers are
needed to help the students make their gift selection and stay within their
budget, especially the younger students.
Cash Bash: The Cash Bash is a MAJOR fundraiser which provides at least 1/3 of the amount needed to fund the school year. This event requires MANY volunteers in order for it to be as successful and profitable as possible. Volunteers are needed the day before for set-up. Volunteers are needed the night of the event to help serve food, to take tickets at the door, to sell Chinese Auction tickets, pull tabs, and other special raffle tickets, and for clean-up. In the months preceding the event, help is needed with selling the event tickets and gathering Chinese Auction items.
Fun Day: Fun
Day takes place over two days at the end of the school year and is a great way
to finish out the year! We plan many
stations that the students will visit throughout the day. Parent volunteers are needed to oversee the
stations, explaining the station to each class that visits and ensuring that
the station is running safely and properly.
PTO meetings are held on the third Wednesday every month with the exception of March.
Children are always welcome and we will provide snacks and entertainment for any child in attendance.
Additional volunteer opportunities will be available throughout the year. They may include, but are not limited to, luncheons, assemblies/programs, fundraisers, and Junior Achievement Day.
In addition to all of the events listed above,
we are excited to add a few new Fundraisers as well as Events hosted by the PTO
for the students! We will keep you posted on all of these as soon as dates have
Please remember that any volunteering that requires interaction with the students you will need to have your clearances turned into the office before you can participate.
