    Welcome new families and those who continue at Craig Elementary School.  The Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is a volunteer group dedicated to supporting the school and enhancing the quality of the educational experience at Craig for all students.

    The PTO’s number one priority is supporting the school, which not only involves coordinating volunteers and school events, but also the very necessary job of fundraising.  This year the PTO will have one large fundraiser along with ongoing fundraisers in order to raise money for the following:

    SHORT TERM GOALS:

    • PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
    • PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT
    • FLEXIBLE SEATING
    • LIBRARY
    • OSCILLATING FANS
    • SAFETY
    • MOBY MAX
    • VINYL LETTERING FOR BUILDING
    • TEACHER GRANT REQUESTS

    LONG TERM GOALS:

    • NEW TABLES AND CHAIRS FOR THE CAFETERIA (COMPLETED IN 2019)
    • OUTDOOR PAVILLION (ESTIMATED 3-4 YEARS)
    • DISHWASHER FOR TEACHERS LOUNGE
    • GAGA PIT

     

    Our 2019-2020 Calendar of Events are listed below and the PTO could not host all of these events without the help of volunteers, like you.  

    We invite you to get involved and to make this school an even better place for your child and all the children of Craig Elementary.  Your help is important and greatly appreciated. Attached you will find a volunteer flyer.  You can print this form out, fill it out and put it in the green PTO mailbox in the lobby at Craig Elementary.

     

    We would also love to see you at the PTO meetings this year.   Besides being a part of your child’s school, there may be INCENTIVES FOR ATTENDING, just saying.

    • Time: 6:00 - 7:00
    • Location: Library
    • Dates: First Wednesday of every other month
