Welcome to the Riggs Elementary PTO
Welcome to the 2012-2013 Year!
The Riggs PTO is looking forward to another wonderful year. Our goal is to support the faculty and staff and help to provide the best learning environment for our children. We have been busy planning lots of new and exciting things for this school year. Here are a few of the things we have planned for the upcoming year:
Past Favorites New Additions Fundraisers
Ice Cream Social Go Green Recycling Read-a-thon
Muffins for Moms Charity Service Projects School Cents
Donuts for Dads Online Web-Store Box Tops
Art Walk Store Rewards
School Festival Restaurant Nights
Daddy Daughter Dance Boosterthon Fun Run
We are excited to be launching a new fundraising event,
The Boosterthon Fun Run. Riggs Elementary will be the first school in Arizona to host the Boosterthon team. We will kick off the event in January with a group of young and energetic leaders who will encourage our students with motivational advice on good character, leadership and fitness. The excitement concludes with a Fun Run. You can check out their website for more information. www.Boosterthon.com
Our primary objective as a PTO is to provide our schools with funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child. To meet this important objective, and afford services that are no longer covered by our school budgets, we must fundraise. Though it may not be our favorite responsibility, it is a necessary one. Here are some of the things our fundraising dollars will support this year.
Accelerated Reader Program
Art Masterpiece Program
School Community Events
Literature Studies Sets
We would like to invite you to share your thoughts and ideas. This year due to a number of requests, we have moved our PTO meetings to right after school. We will be meeting in the Media Center at 3:30 on the second Wednesday of each month. If you are unable to join us for the meeting, the next day, Thursday, we will have a morning recap/coffee chat where we welcome your feedback.
With everything we have planned, we will need lots of volunteers. If you are interested in helping out in any way, please feel free to contact any board members. We will also have a sign-up form in the packet you receive at Meet Your Teacher Night. In addition, we’ll have sign up sheets posted during that evening.
Enjoy the remainder of your summer and we look forward to seeing you in July! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of us! Thanks for all you do for our school!
