Dear Cliffwood Family,
Welcome to Cliffwood Elementary’s 2017-2018 school year. Our PTO Board is looking forward to a year filled with enriching, educational, and fun activities for the students; and their families too! Through the support of you, the school staff, and administration we plan to continue creating an atmosphere that fosters a lifelong love of learning.
How can I help make my student’s year at Cliffwood a great year?
By joining the PTO! All of us lead busy lives- but maybe you could volunteer for an activity like a dance or the bookfair? You can also help us through participating in our fundraisers. Even by just joining the PTO your $7.00 per household donation helps us bring in programs and pay for field trips that school budgets are unable to fund. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.
Who can join the PTO?
Anyone associated with Cliffwood School can join. Parents, grandparents, teachers, support staff, administrators. Not only does your $7.00 per household donation benefit the students, it entitles you to the ability to introduce motions, vote in annual PTO Board elections, and hold office.
What is the PTO doing for the Cliffwood students?
Through various fundraisers the PTO raises money that is invested in the education of the students. We work to bring in curriculum based assemblies and programs, author visits, class trips at no additional cost to the parents, Fun Day activities and T-shirts, and help purchase items the school will use to provide the best education possible. Some of the fundraisers we offer are:
Kid Stuff Coupon Books
Holiday Gift Shoppe
Box Tops for Education
Campbell’s Labels for Education
Target Take Charge of Education
Family Fundraiser Nights at local restaurants
AND SO MUCH MORE!!!!
We also organize activities so that families can be a part of the school community. Dances, Pizza Bingo, Holiday Festival, Mother’s Day Tea, and Father’s Day Ice Cream Social are times when the family can have fun while supporting Cliffwood Elementary. Check the weekly Virtual Backpack for the dates and times of these activities.
Who Is our PTO?
It’s you. It’s us. We are neighbors and community members who have children at this school and want to give them the best we’ve got. Please join the PTO- we would love to have you.
