Wrentham PTO

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to school! For those of you who are unfamiliar with us, we are a volunteer group made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our students. The PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents alike! The purpose of our organization is to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs; as well as school spirit and pride. The PTO uses its resources by fundraising for our schools and students.

 

We look forward to meeting with other parents, families and beyond that would like to get involved with our PTO this school year. Everything we do is based on volunteers. Please consider joining us at a PTO meeting to discuss events, help plan a fundraiser to enhance our school, or to share any ideas! Attending a meeting does not mean you have to volunteer.

 

You can volunteer as much or as little as you are able. There are so many ways to help and many can be done right from home. No need to be at every event or meeting to be involved! And we do not collect yearly dues. We want to build belonging with each other and have an avenue to connect with each other.

 

Throughout the year the PTO sponsors a variety of fun events and fundraisers. Some of these include the Fall Fundraiser, Trunk-O-Treat, Spring Scholastic Book Fair, Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week, Special someone events, Grade 6 yearbook and much more. All money made at PTO events and fundraisers goes back into the PTO fund to allow for more events and school support.

 

We provide a lot of assistance to the school throughout the year, including:

  • New teacher set up of $100 per teacher

  • Purchase agendas for all Roderick grades yearly

  • Purchase lanyards for incoming preschool and Kindergarten students

  • Purchase Wrentham Wildcat folders for all students

  • Purchased Wrentham Cinch bags and school supplies for all students

  • Teacher appreciation events that happen throughout the year

  • Playground equipment

  • Donations for snacks and waters for school nurses

  • Ice cream truck for 6th-grade graduation

  • All buses for field trips!

  • And MORE!

Bay State Textiles:

 

We have partnered with Bay State Textiles for an ongoing textile recycling fundraiser. There is a large, white recycling bin in the parking lot by the Janelli Annex. We generate a rebate of $100 per ton of textiles collected. An easy way to help! Clothing, shoes, linens, stuffed animals as well as many more items can be recycled in the bin. Visit www.baystatetextiles.com to see a detailed list of what can be recycled.
