Shaw Parent Teacher Organization
We are excited about starting a new school year and would like to extend an invitation for you to get involved in Shaw’s PTO. Our motto is “Bringing Home and School Together!” We provide services and support to our teachers and staff who in turn do great things with our children.
The PTO sponsors several events throughout the school year and is always in need of folks to help. Some of our activities are:
v Ice Cream Social/Meet and Greet August
v Fun run October 26th
v Pastries with Parents/Grandparents October 24-26th
v Scholastic Book Fair October 20- 26th
v Monthly Spirit Nights at local restaurants 3rd Tuesday of the Month
The PTO volunteers also assist with school functions such as:
v School Picture Days
v Teacher Dinners during the week of fall conferences
v Science Fair
v Field Day
v Kindergarten Registration
v Box Tops for Education collection
Funds raised throughout the year are used to provide necessary supplies that enhance our students’ experience at Shaw. For example, we provide gift cards to reward students who have been recognized for their good character through the district’s Character Education Program. We also fund two $500 college scholarships for graduating seniors who attended Shaw Elementary. This year we are putting our funds toward a shade pavillion with picnic tables on the back playground. This can be used at recess or teachers can take their class out for outside learning.
Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month after school in the IMC.
