About the PTO

The Pine Grove School PTO is a volunteer organization made up of parents, guardians, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are dedicated to promoting the education of all Pine Grove students.

PGS PTO supports Pine Grove through fundraising, volunteerism, programs, scholarships and events. Our goal is to help Pine Grove foster a safe, caring learning environment that embraces all cultures and addresses students’ social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs. PGS PTO further strides to support and enrich our children’s educational opportunities so that every child can reach his or her academic and creative potential.

PGS has an exciting new fundraiser from Minted! Shop on minted.com and use the code FUNDRAISEPINEGROVESCH to receive 20% off your order* AND 15% of proceeds will go back to PGS. This code will be valid for the remainder of the school year.

We are excited to bring you PGS swag this fall beginning with this great multi-purpose bag! You might be thinking, what can I use this bag for, but we have that covered: winter gear, library book bag, grocery bag, sports equipment for recess and so much more. Be on the look out for these bags to be on sale at the upcoming movie night later this month, along with our new spirit wear (sweatshirts, T shirts and more!).

The Connecticut State Department of Education (SDE) has announced a new funding source that will allow the Free Meals for All Program to continue on a temporary basis. Based on the formula that SDE has for funding, the Avon Public Schools will be offering free meals to all students through December 2, 2022. This will allow for one free breakfast and one free lunch to be offered to every student during every school day.

PGS PTO is excited to invite everyone to our second General PTO Meeting!

Thursday, December 1st @ 6:30pm, in the PGS Library.

We will be offering babysitting from 6:30 to 8 PM in the cafeteria by members of the Avon Middle School LEO club. We will have board games, arts and crafts, and coloring sheets for the kids. Please RSVP here by Tuesday, November 29th how many children you plan to have in attendance. We need this information to ensure we have enough babysitters.

See you at the meeting!!

At PGS, we have so much to celebrate! The students at PGS deserve a yearbook to remember the fun times with teachers and friends during the 2022-2023 school year. In order to make that happen, we need your photos!

We encourage you to download the Entourage app to your mobile device so as soon as you take a picture, you can easily upload it to the yearbook.

Once you click on the yearbook link, you will find categories to drop your photo(s) in. You will find categories such as First Day of School, Recess, Trunk or Treat, and Halloween Parade. Click Pine Grove- CT 2023 Yearbook | Entourage Yearbooks Link to upload pictures.
