On behalf of the MacAfee Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), we would like to welcome back all returning MacAfee families and extend a very warm greeting to those who are joining us for the first time. We are looking forward to another exciting year!
The PTO provides a very special service to the staff and families of MacAfee Road School and we are proud of all our accomplishments. It is because of the generosity, energy, and commitment of many wonderful volunteers that we are able to accomplish all that we do. We have a group of very engaged parents who have partnered with our school administrators and teachers to make a difference in our children’s education.
We strive to create an atmosphere where teachers, administrators, and support staff can do their best work - and so can our children. We welcome and encourage all of you to become an active participant in your child’s experience at MacAfee by joining the PTO. Any time you can volunteer to the PTO will be greatly appreciated.
The basic supplies needed for your child’s education is supplied through the school budget and the PTO supplies the extras. The PTO spends approximately $20,000 annually on supplies and activities not provided by the school budget, which is raised through fundraising. Families are not required to participate in fundraisers, but without successful fundraising efforts some of the items/activities provided by the PTO will need to be eliminated. Please consider volunteering some time. Your child will love seeing you at school.
The PTO will send most information through paperwork sent home in your child’s backpack and via email (for those subscribed to our mailing list) We strongly encourage you to also be part of the MacAfee PTO Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/groups/MacAfeePTO/. Please check your child’s backpack daily. There is a PTO mailbox in the main office that we check daily; feel free to contact us by sending a note to our attention if you need to reach us for any reason or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We wish you a wonderful school year and look forward to seeing you at our PTO meetings this year!
