Are you looking for a way to get more involved with your child’s education? PTO is a perfect opportunity to create a closer connection with staff and other parents. Our goals include informational meetings designed around specific topics that will help in parenting your elementary child, open forums for parent information and teacher feedback, and community learning programs.
We have several volunteer opportunities available. Please contact Tammy Wilkerson for more information.
Can Shed Pick-up – first Saturday every month
Please bag your refundable cans and bottles and set out for pick up before 10:00am on that day. We cannot accept tea, juice, or water bottles. Your donation is greatly appreciated! Funds from the Can Shed collection are used to purchase books and materials for the Amana Community Library. The Can Shed continues throughout the year on the first Saturday of every month. We are always in need of volunteers to assist with collecting cans. If you are interested in helping with this effort, please contact Stacy Ritchie (662-4244) or Jamie Bormann (622-6229).
Our primary focus in the past has been focused around teacher support and community events and we would like to move equally towards an environment of parent-teacher connection. We will continue to support and supplement classroom activities and needs, and also give extra support through fund-raising and classroom help.
Three holiday parties are hosted by room parents during the school year.
P.T.O. funds are used annually to buy books,
classroom materials, assist with field trip expenses and class activities.
