About Robert Frost PTO
We switched to the Robert Frost PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) at the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year. As a parent or other family member of a Robert Frost student, you are invited to become part of the PTO. Many of you are unfamiliar with the PTO, so we thought we would try to answer a few questions for you.
Why do I need to get involved in the PTO?
Family involvement at school is very rewarding and is important to the success of your child. We need your voice; we want to know what events and opportunities are important to you and your child.
What does the PTO do?
The PTO has a history of sponsoring many wonderful events such as Tremendous Thursday, Pizza Bingo, and the Hobby Fair. We use money raised from donations and PTO events to purchase items for the school. Check out the new rock wall PTO purchased last year! Other items we have purchased in the past include the school stage, new playground equipment, and extra mini laptops for the school’s mobile computer lab.
Does it cost to join the PTO?
No, there are no membership fees to be part of the PTO. However, in order to fund the many events we host during the school year, we do accept donations! We suggest $20 per child or $35 per family, but any amount that works with your budget is greatly appreciated.
When are the meetings?
We have four meetings during the school year. Generally they are in September, November, January, and April. Please watch your email for dates and times of future meetings. Childcare is provided at no charge during the meetings. And contrary to popular belief, we promise you won’t be obligated to chair an activity by merely attending a meeting!
How do I donate?
Please send your donation in an envelope marked PTO in your child’s Friday folder. THANKS!
