Welcome to the 2016/2017 School Year

This year Pyrtle PTO has started the transition to Konstella, our online directory and volunteer website & app. We are excited about these changes to be more digital and effecient with communication. In addition to Konstella, we are beginning to use the website as a place to sign up for clubs, purchase Pyrtle gear and simply stay in the know with upcoming Pyrtle events.

We have already started signing up volunteers for Classroom Ambassadors. Classroom Ambassadors will serve as a contact person for the homeroom teachers, should they need additional supplies, volunteers, etc. Classroom Ambassadors will also help organize various PTO events throughout the school year.

Kindergarten Classroom Ambassadors will assist with Valentine's Day activities.
First Grade Classroom Ambassadors will assist with teacher hospitality, such as meals for parent/teacher conferences, teacher appreciation week, etc.
Second Grade Classroom Ambassadors will assist with the bookfair.
Thrid Grade Classroom Ambassadors will assist with the ice cream social.
Fourth Grade Classroom Ambassadors will assist with movie nights.
Fifth Grade Classroom Ambassadors will assist with the 2 Stars Hockey Family Nights.

Each of these events serves to bring together Pyrtle families and the community. Some of these events also serve as fundraisers for either the PTO or particular grade level.

Fundraisers

We will have 3 main fundraisers this year:

  • Fun Night - September 16th

  • Walk-a-Thon — October 25th

  • Pogo Card & Campbell's Nursery Giftcard Sales


Volunteers

Volunteers are crucial to the success of the various events that PTO sponsors throughout the year. The PTO Board recognizes that all Pyrtle families have busy lives outside of school. That's why they ask that each family commit to volunteering for 1-2 hours with the various events throughout the year. Most of us can find a hour sometime during the school year to volunteer to help make Pyrtle an even better place to learn.

All volunteer positions will now be posted via Konstella. Check there to see where you can help out for an hour or more this year!
