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.

NEXT YEAR

JOIN OUR TEAM FOR THE 2021 - 2022 SCHOOL YEAR!

Please consider joining the PTO as a board member next year!

Hopefully, COVID protocols will allow volunteers inside PGS next year. The PTO is always looking for parents to help in a variety of areas. Whether you have an hour at home in the evening to help with computer duties to in person gardening skills during the day, the PTO would like you to consider helping however you can! Lots of different opportunities exist, contact the PTO for more info! The PTO is a fun team and need lots of skills and talents!

COMMUNICATIONS - Join an established team preparing this Piney Post newsletter, sending reminders via Konstella, and other various duties! Learn and work alongside great parents who have students in 3rd and 4th grade ... would like to pass on the position to parents who have students in K-2!

SOCIAL MEDIA - Have a few minutes to spare while on your lunch hour or home? Help post and spread PGS presence on official PGS social media sites! Very low time commitment and no in person needs!

FUNDRAISING - Join an established team of experienced parents and help raise funds for PGS projects like in class field trips or physical improvements! Varied times and opportunities throughout the year range from restaurant nights to Boosterthon and new events!

DIVERSITY & MULTICULTURAL AWARENESS - Join a team to work with PGS staff in planning the Multicultural Fair and other events educating and celebrating PGS community diversity.

SPECIAL EVENTS - Help plan special family fun events at PGS!

GARDENING & GROUNDS - Join a group to help weed, plant, and beautify PGS grounds! Low time commitment at your convenience and enjoy the outdoors! PTO provides the plants, you help with the green thumb! HOSPITALITY & APPRECIATION EVENTS - Join an established committee who help celebrate and recognize PGS staff at different times during the year. Learn alongside parents who have done it for years! Creative, organized, and love to plan events - we need you!

BOOK FAIR & ONE SCHOOL, ONE BOOK - Join an established committee to help coordinate PGS Book Fairs with Scholastic Books. Hopefully in person book fairs may be possible this year and PGS enjoys a fall and spring book fair. Is late February a slow and convenient time for you? Join experienced volunteers who aid in preparing the *top secret* One School, One Book materials for the big reveal in March!

YEARBOOK & PHOTOGRAPHY - Join an experienced and established volunteer group in creatively collecting photographs and hopefully taking photos too! Help commemorate PGS memories from the first day of school through Spring! Can be worked from home or in person, hopefully too! Join a creative, fun team!

4th GRADE CELEBRATION - Many hands needed to join an experienced team with multiple 4th grade activities. From ordering t-shirts, coordinating the class photo, to the end of the year party, celebrating our departing 4th grade class! Join the fun!

More opportunities will arise throughout the year - watch Konstella for news!

All parents are welcome to join a fun and dedicated team!
