PGS PTO FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES
The Pine Grove School PTO works with the faculty and administration to enhance the school environment, support PGS teachers and staff, and provide innovative programs to enrich the students.* The PGS PTO is looking for your support in achieving these goals, and we have some great ways for you to help.
At any time, you may provide a direct donation in any amount to the PTO in lieu of participating in school fundraisers.
Checks can be made payable to the "PGS PTO" and sent in with your child in an envelope marked "PGS PTO Donation."
We appreciate your support and feel luck to have such an active and caring school community!
*In 2021-22, examples of how fundraising dollars were used were as follows: "in-class field trips" presented by Mystic Aquarium, Roaring Brook Nature Center, Noah Webster House, Hartford Stage, and many more!
