AND COUNTING...
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Wednesday, 8/29

See you soon!
WELCOME TO THE PTO!
As a Charter Oak family, you are already a member of the PTO - no fees, no forms. We strive to connect families, teachers and staff in community because when we all work together our children are happier and they learn more.

Do you have ideas to share? We will post more information on ways you can help or contact us at charteroakpto@gmail.com .

Welcome Back Breakfast!
Immediately after drop-off, 8/29
Please plan to join other Charter Oak families for coffee, a light breakfast and conversation immediately following drop-off on the first day of school. This is a great time to ask questions and learn about your school.

Brought to you by the Charter Oak PTO. Please consider joining a committee! Choose from Special Events, Fundraising, and Engagement to name a few. Email charteroakpto@gmail.com .
ROOM PARENTS STILL NEEDED!
If your child is in the following classrooms, please consider volunteering to be a Room Parent. This is a great fit for parents who aren't available to help during the day but have computer time to email the teacher and families.
  • Ms. Lizon (gr. 5)
  • Ms. Faenza (gr. 4)
  • Ms. Giammatteo (gr. 3)
  • Ms. Florence (gr. 3)
FUNDRAISING
Ways you can help - no cost, no time!
Box Tops Collection
Last year we raised over $600 just by collecting these Box Tops labels on products found in your home. Be sure to check every cabinet in your house! One class was awarded Rita's Italian Ice for bringing in the most Box Tops. Stay tuned!
