Is it too late to join the PTO?
We hold our annual Membership drive in September.
However, it is never too late to join the PTO.
You can come to a general meeting and sign up there.
There is also a form available on our website that may be downloaded, filled out and sent into school.
How much time will I need to devote to the PTO?
Families are asked to help out where and when they can.
You can help once or often- it depends on you!
A volunteer sheet is sent to you in the Summer Mailing and is available on this website.
Look it over, see if anything interests you and help where you can.
We all have families and understand how difficult it is to find extra time to volunteer.
Any time that you can give is greatly appreciated!
What does the PTO actually do for Midland School?
The fundraisers and donations that the PTO collects
are used to directly fund all of the things the PTO does for the entire school.
Our Cultural Arts Committee provides the students of Midland school
with fun and informative assemblies. We have been able to bring in well known artists,
authors and performers to share their talents and stories with the children.
We provide assistance during RP Fun Run, Picture Day, Field day Holiday Sale & Book Fair.
We sponsor a Fall Dance for the upper grades, a Fun Night for middle school,
and a theme Party for the youngest students.
We give Scholarships to college-bound past Midland School #1 graduates each year.
We sponsor the Welcome Back Tea, Staff Appreciation, Brunch, Ice-Creasm Social & Class Parties.
These are just some of the ways that the PTO helps to enhance
the educational experience at Midland School #1.
Who do I contact if I have questions about the PTO?
You may contact any one of the PTO Officers or Board of Directors members.
They are willing to answer questions at any time.
Our President, Shawna Riordan, can always be contacted through
email at email@example.com
You may also bring your questions and/or concerns to a General Meeting.
