Greetings from the Joslyn PTO Board
On behalf of the Joslyn Elementary PTO, we would like to welcome everyone back to school! PTO stands for Parent Teacher Organization, consisting of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students. We support the students and staff at Joslyn, and assist in efforts to solve school needs through volunteering and funding.
What is the PTO and who can be a Member?
The PTO includes the following Board Positions: President, Vice President, Principal & 2nd Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.
Membership is open to all parents, families, guardians, school faculty and staff. Membership costs just $5 per household. Don't worry, becoming a member does not automatically sign you up to volunteer or make you obligated to attend meetings (although we'd love to have you!); it just means that you support our group and believe in what we are doing to help the students and staff at Joslyn.
PTO Programs & Fundraising
Our primary objective as a PTO is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources, and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every student and benefit the school. To meet this important objective, we raise money with fundraisers. This year, we are hoping to have just ONE major fundraising event.
We will host a coupon book fundraiser in the fall and then continue our tradition of the Jaguar Jog, but hold it in the spring this year. If we meet our fundraising goal, we'll be able to achieve wonderful things for our school such as:
- Classroom Field Trips
- Holiday School Store
- Family Nights
- Teacher & Staff Appreciation Celebrations
- Joslyn Scholarship (awarded to current high school seniors who attended Joslyn)
Become a Volunteer….Why YOU should get involved!
Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education have better grades and fewer discipline problems! We promise that the time you give to your school and students will be worth your while - and FUN! If you'd like to join a committee or see first-hand what the PTO is all about, attend our monthly PTO Meetings on the first Tuesday of each month at the school, or send an email to JoslynPTO@gmail.com.
Thank you and have a great year!
