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 Fall Festival and 5K run October
v Pastries with Parents/Grandparents At the end of the first quarter – October
v Scholastic Book Fair In conjunction with Pastries event
v Monthly Spirit Nights at local restaurants Commission earned on food sales
v Gift Card Sales Prior to Christmas and Spring Break
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 fund educational programs from the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, Greene County Parks and 4-H in the classroom. We also fund two $500 college scholarships for graduating seniors who attended Shaw Elementary.
Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month after school in the IMC.
