Welcome to the Claysville Elementary PTO (Parent Teacher Organization)! 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, Vice Principal Mr. Wolfe, and all of the teachers and faculty here at Claysville Elementary to enhance each and every student’s elementary school experience.   Please consider volunteering with us!  Look over the attached information that describes the PTO volunteer opportunities.  Then please fill out the volunteer form by indicating which areas you would like to participate in.  With everyone’s participation, we can make this a great 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 the day.

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: This year, our Holiday Shoppe will be held December 3rd -7th. 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:  This year our Cash Bash will be on March 23rd at South Franklin Fire Hall. It 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 will be held on the third Wednesday every month with the exception of March. Meeting times this year will be either 3:30 pm or 5:30 pm in the school library. Anyone wanting to attend can enter through the library doors by the upper parking lot for the 5:30 pm meetings. For the 3:30 pm meetings you must enter through the main office. Children are always welcome and we will provide snacks and entertainment for any child in attendance.
