We hope that you have been enjoying your summer and time with your families. We are excited to begin the next school year and are sure you are too, but secretly wish Summer were just a little longer.
We wanted to take a moment to introduce ourselves, we are Sara
Humphrey and Carissa LoNano and we are your 2017/2018 PTO Co-Presidents. We are both very excited to be leading the PTO this year and supporting our wonderful school and community.
With YOUR support the PTO exceeded their planned budget by $47,000 this past School year. With these extra funds we have purchased a new science textbook series for grades 6-8, we purchased 2 new picnic tables for the playground, updated the sidewalk drawings for the children to enjoy, put aside $5,000 for technology upgrades AND we put aside $20,000 toward a math series that we plan to implement in the 2018-2019 School year.
The PTO is not just us and the people who volunteer to co-chair events, it is the entire school community, we are all the Saint Michael School PTO. Together we unite as a school community to build friendships and raise funds for Saint Michael School and our children. We want to encourage both old and new families to join us and help us to build a strong family community. This school year we have many fun events planned and hope we see you all there and encourage you to volunteer to help with making these events a huge success for our school. We will have sign up sheets at Open house and you will have an opportunity to chat with some of this years event Chairs. We still have openings for co-Chairs for some of this years events, please remember that without volunteers to coordinate these events we can not run them. Click here for a list of this years events, the co-Chairs for the event, as well as the open positions. If you are interested in an event please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have.
We are here to answer any and all questions you may have and we look forward to getting to know you all this school year!
Sara and Carissa

When you participate in a Gift Card Program, you purchase gift cards/certificates to stores or vendors that you would regularly shop. These stores/vendors may include your grocery store, restaurants, clothing stores, movie theaters and gas stations just to name a few. These are the same cards that you would purchase if you went directly to the store, so these are also great for gift-giving! There are hundreds of participating vendors, please see the order form below for a list.
For every gift card purchased from our gift card vendor, our school will earn a percentage of that card (averaging 8%). As parents, we can support the school without spending any additional money.
The vendors provide the gift cards at a discount and in return they get to support a charity, advertise, sell their gift cards in bulk and obtain customer loyalty.
Each month we will be taking orders and will place one large order for the entire school. We also keep a stock of some of the most popular vendors at the front desk for last minute gift needs.
