Parent Teacher Organization
PTO stands for Parent Teacher Organization, and Trinity’s version of a PTA organization.
We are made up of anyone wanting to support the school: teachers, parents, grandparents, and special friends who are willing to participate in volunteer projects. This group is responsible for raising money for the extra things needed for our terrific school and teachers. We also provide volunteers to support a wide range of activities during the school year, from weeding flower beds to providing cookies for a school function. Dues are $35 per family which goes a long way toward funding various activities throughout the year. You can still participate if you cannot afford the dues.
How can I volunteer for PTO?
Fill out the PTO Participation Form in your registration packet and bring it to school on Registration Day. You will be contacted for any activity that you signed up for. Many of us are very busy with work and family tugging at us. It is hard to find the time to volunteer at school. Studies show, however, that one of the single most effective ways to increase your child’s success at school is for a parent to volunteer at school. The kids love it, and Trinity definitely needs you!! If you find you wish to help with some event but you didn’t sign up, just contact Jamie Lewallen, our Board President, or Marlie McDonald our Development Coordinator.
What Are the PTO Fundraisers?
Look for these preferred customer cards at registration. Every time you buy something at Homeland, a good percentage of this returns to Trinity. Give one to your family and friends. It benefits Trinity no matter who uses it!
Start collecting General Mills Food Box tops from many of the products you use now. Twice a year PSG collects them and returns them for cash to fund ongoing programs.
Our fundraising committee is hard at work devising clever schemes to raise funds to improve our school. Please be generous with your effort and time when your help is needed on these projects.
If you have any ideas for fund raising—don’t hesitate to tell your PTO Representatives—any little bit will help!
