Help us decorate the connector with leaves symbolizing your donations to the Hosmer PTO! Leaves of green ($5), yellow ($10), orange ($20), red ($50) and light brown ($100) will fill the Hosmer connector with color. Checks can be made out to Hosmer PTO and given to your classroom teacher: please indicate if you’d like your child’s or family’s name on the leaf. Remember to see if your company supports matching gifts! Direct any questions to Kristen Fitzpatrick at email@example.com
What we’ve done so far this year …
Much of what the PTO does is somewhat invisible, but it helps to know where your money is going, especially since we always seem to be asking for more! This fall we have run fundraisers with the Color-A-Thon Fun Run, Movie Night and Meadow Farms, raising about $5,000. Where has the money gone?
Funded Knucklebones to entertain the kids at the Welcome Back Picnic
Reimbursed classroom teachers for money they spent getting their rooms and supplies spiffy for the start of school
Bought new rugs for classrooms that needed them
Purchased new books for the library to run the Watertown Student Book Award (WSBA) Program. This is a student-led book award program in which students decide the winner. 4th and 5th grade students are invited to read and evaluate the 36 nominated books, all available for checkout at the Hosmer Library. A HUGE thanks to Mrs. Reid for bringing WSBA to Hosmer!!!
Created emergency backpacks for each classroom with essential supplies for the teachers to use in case of an emergency evacuation
We have many more things to fund throughout the year, including field trips to enrich the classroom experience, visits from museums and historical experts, International Night and the Art and Music Extravaganza!
