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.

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.

The PGS PTO want to send a big thank you to all the families who joined us for our first ever outdoor movie night! The excitement was palpable as the chairs and blankets were set up, and the lines for the concessions grew! We hope that this will become an annual tradition at PGS! All toiletry donations for Gifts of Love are greatly appreciated! We delivered these much needed items yesterday. The PGS PTO would like to thank all the PTO members who helped to set up and worked at the concession stand throughout the night!

Lastly, a huge shout out for Kelsey Nemarich the driving force behind this wonderful family event!
