What does the PTO do? We are excited to continue our support of FSEMS students and teachers, and look forward to partnering with you! Our PTO is working to promote the general welfare and development of our students, to encourage a good working relationship between the parents and teachers, and to bring about improvements in our educational facilities.
We support many programs at FSEMS, such as the school’s author visits, the new Robotics program, Teacher Appreciation Lunches and the purchasing of software for the classrooms. We recently purchased thirty Chromebooks and the furniture for the Library. Other PTO funds go towards our Student Motivator’s Program events, like the Honor Roll Social in May and the End of Year Ice Cream Social. We also support the “Cruisin’ Smart” Assembly to educate students on the dangers of impaired or distracted driving, and Crossing Boundaries sessions to discuss tolerance, diversity, respect and compassion.
Many of our efforts are behind the scenes. The PTO provides monies needed for special programs, equipment and upgrades at the school. We supply homework aids for students and transportation funding for special programs. We also purchase snacks and other needs for the Nurses’ Office, and fill special requests from the staff, after-school activities and clubs.
There are so many ways the PTO provides a much-needed and appreciated presence!
