What Is PTO?
PTO is our parent teacher organization. PTO supports our school, teacher, and student needs. PTO holds fundraisers during the year such as Walk-a-Thon and T-Shirt sales in order to raise money that will go back into the school as teacher resources, school supplies, and so much more!
Here at Newberry Elementary, you are a valued member of a great team working together to help serve the needs of our school. Parents, guardians, family, friends, faculty, and staff are all invited to join!
PTO Membership Fee is only $10.00 per family.
We communicate with our members via email and Facebook. It's the easiest way to become involved and stay up-to-date on the latest PTO events and fundraisers. We will also send home PTO newsletters so you can prepare for our next meeting. PTO has general meetings about every 6 weeks. We will email members in advance of any upcoming meets or schedule changes. These meetings are important to attend so parents can give input on the items PTO is working on such as T-Shirt designs, Walk-a-Thon, and Book Fair. We value our member's suggestions and we encourage you to bring any questions or concerns to our meetings, too!
Once a panther, always a panther!
