TBS PTO 2017-2018 Year End Recap

What did the PTO support this past school year? 

All TBS afterschool activities are planned through the VP Activities chairs. Through your child’s program support, the instructors give back a portion of the programs’ funds to the PTO. Thank you to those who took an opportunity to try a program, or register for a seasonal favorite – we hope all enjoyed the selection activities that were offered this school year! 

As this year comes to a close, the PTO would like to thank all the volunteers who helped us support TBS this year. PTO support focused on: school pictures, teacher back to school disbursements, teacher appreciation holiday and spring luncheons, December book fair, spring musical, 5th grade field day, 6th grade end of year social, yearbook club, Roaring Brook Nature Center in-house science supplement program, and the new ‘Battle of the Books’ reading program. We have had a fantastic year, and have been able to support the following thanks to our volunteers, and our generous One & Done donations collected – that totaled just over $11,000 this year!!! 

Below is an approximate end-of-year report on our spending: 

  • Teacher Stipends (back to school): $4,000
  • Roaring Brook Nature Center :$2,300
  • Two water fountain/bottle fill station coolers: $2,000
  • Back to school step up day supplies: $1,700
  • Staff Appreciation luncheons: $1,100 (funded by one & done and also donation $680 designated to this)
  • Battle of the Books: $700
  • Grounds and garden: $50

Thank you again for your support – and we wish you all a relaxing summer! 

The 2017-2018 PTO Executive Board: Elizabeth Abshire, Rosemary Neamtz, Jia Yeum Amy Alamar, Lisa Indelicato, Lauren Magel, Kattie Robbin, LeRuth Bell, Laura Ward, and Lisa Alexander

As you know, the 6th Grade Farewell Celebration will be held June 1, 2018.

If you are able to contribute, we are looking for gift cards from $5.00-$25.00 from places like Amazon, Dick’s, Barnes & Noble, E&D Pizza, etc. — basically, any gift you think a 6th grader would love to take home that night. All gift cards should be sent to the TBS Main Office by Tuesday, May 29, 2018.  Please mark the envelope”6th Grade Farewell Celebration Raffle Prize.” Please feel free to contact anyone on the committee with any questions or concerns.

Join the TBS PTO Board for 2018-2019!

The TBS PTO Executive Board is looking for 5th grade parents to team up and be a part of our Executive board next year! These are the positions we are looking to fill: President, Treasurer, and VP Website/Marketing/PR.

Please consider joining the team and helping out our fabulous school! Ideally, all positions are held by a 5th and 6thgrade parent. We meet once a month and, depending on position, only a couple of hours per month are needed.

President – it’s not as difficult and time consuming as it may seem, and a great way to get to know the staff and teachers at TBS. Current Co-Presidents are available to help with transition and management through the year.

Treasurer – knowledge of quick book is very helpful! With our One & Done fundraiser – this job is much more ‘low key’ than RBS/PGS.

VP Website – knowledge of WordPress is very helpful. Great job for a working parent – work from home and help maintain our awesome website!!

Directory – help us introduce Konstella to TBS, and get our directory out paper free!

Contact us with any questions about interest and positions details!
