Finding New Ways to Support Our School
With the current hard times, the Three Oaks PTO is continuing our efforts to be able to provide our students with MORE fun and educational activities throughout the year, and to also be able to purchase materials for the classrooms to help our teachers and students. We are continuing to work with the Three Oaks staff to meet their needs and the student's needs during these changing times within our district. Many new activities have been added to the calendar, funding has been adjusted in our budget for more assemblies and to help with other support areas as needs arise. We are also excited to be working with the other District 26 PTO's to brainstorm/share ideas and connect our resources for the better of all District 26 students.
We ask for your continued support of our fundraisers throughout the year as every little bit counts. We are trying out some new ways of fundraising and many of our fundraisers do not cost money. For example, by recycling your paper products, ink cartridges, or cutting out Box Tops from you pantry... the PTO earns money for your school. Our goal this year is to continue our current programs for students, give back to the classrooms as much as we can, as well as find new ways to build a better learning community.
Keep sending in those Box Tops! As an incentive, each month the class who supplies the most box tops will win an ice cream party! The class that has the highest quantity turned in by the end of the year wins a pizza party with Mr. Gibbs. But in reality, all of our children win with this program. So, please encourage your family, friends, and neighbors to clip box tops and remember to send your box tops in with your child's and teacher’s name on the baggie. Campbell’s Soup is a separate program and Betty Crocker points are no longer accepted.
Restaurant of the Month
The PTO has made an effort to work with a variety of different local eateries that are willing to give back a percentage of their sales to our school. Please check your school calendars or the PTO bulletin board in the front foyer for the scheduled day each month. You can also find the Restaurant of the Month information on our home page.
