PTO & Volunteers

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

The Role of PGA’s PTO

The PGA PTO is here to help our school attain the necessary funds to enhance the educational experience of our learning community as well as provide opportunities for the learning community to engage socially. PGA PTO logo

Your PTO funds a wide range of activities for the PGA community:

  • Graduation Scholarships: The PTO has awarded over $2,500 in scholarships.
  • Community-Building Programs At Every Grade Level: This includes Fall Festival, Learning Coach Academy, and Teacher Appreciation Week.
  • Improvement Projects: PTO funds projects such as the Community Garden & Outdoor Learning Center, Animation Club, water hydration systems, and building security improvements.
  • Educational Support Tools: PTO funds small and large requests that our teachers carefully select to help with your student’s education. Some of the projects are for a specific classroom and others are requests for items that the entire student body will benefit from. 

However, we can't do it alone! We know how busy you are and we value your time. We also recognize that financial situations have been affected by COVID. With this in mind, we will be focusing on passive fundraisers again this year. In as little as 5 minutes, you can change a few settings and help raise funds for the school with your regular purchases. These passive fundraisers are easy ways to assist PGA. Each dollar raised makes a difference and is impactful to every student, at every grade level!

Earnings will automatically be applied to our account.  If you do have clipped coupons, you can drop them off at the front desk or send them in with your student. 

Aluminum Cans

This year we have started a new passive fundraiser. We are collecting aluminum cans to try to cover some of the costs for Eco Week. Eco Week is a great activity that 5th graders get to experience. The school assumes some of the costs of the trip as well as the part or all of the cost for students on free and reduced lunch. If every enrolled student can collect 1 pound of aluminum cans (about 32 cans) that turns into about $225! That could sponsor 4+ students. We probably all go through at least 3 12-packs of something every year so, send those cans in and let’s turn them into money! Please start collecting these and you can drop them off at the front office or send them in with your students. The entire student body could help out fellow students! If you have a large amount of cans, we could also schedule a time for pick-up.
