The Clopton Parent/Teacher Organization held its final meeting of the year on April 12. Over 60 people attended the meeting which featured presentations by Kindergarten and First Grade students. The following was discussed in new business:
Staff Appreciation Week is May 7-11. PTO is making plans to honor the teachers in a special way to thank them for all they do. Breakfast goodies will be available in the teachers’ lounge May 8.
Muffins With Misses will also be held May 8. Students are invited to bring a mom, sister, aunt, grandma or other dynamite person to breakfast with them. The event will be held from 7-8 a.m. in the cafeteria.
Field Day will be Monday, May 21. PTO could use some help handing out snacks. If you are available, call Ann Denslow at 485-4156.
Upcoming PTO donations – $500 toward the Walking Club field trip; money toward pizza for “Celebrity of the Month” for the remainder of the school year; and money toward mulch on the elementary playground.
PTO also awarded $2,000 split between four elementary teachers in a random drawing. The money will be used for large classroom items or general classroom funds for next school year.
The first meeting for next year will be September 13, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room. Everyone is invited to attend and share additional ideas on raising funds and participating in school events/activities for the 2018-2019 school year.
