Contributing to the Central 100% Fund means you are giving directly to the PTO-sponsored programs and materials that benefit your children. It is optional, as are all fundraisers, but we do need your help to continue offering the high quality support that has been a hallmark of Central PTO.

Please give what you can.

Here’s how Central PTO dollars go to work for your children:

  • Enriching programs and activities including: “Vince the Prince” character education assembly on bullying; Laura Ingalls Wilder Historical Perspectives presentation; and Prismatic Magic laser light assembly on ecology
  • Cultural Arts materials and field trips including Frank Lloyd Wright, Riverside Art Center and Chicago Architecture tours; Artist-in-Residence poetry program and open mike sessions with poet Bill Buczinsky
  • Social events including the Ice Cream Social, Roller Skating Party, Ice Skating Party, Fall Carnival and spring “Dinner and a Movie”
  • Wellness education equipment including the new climbing wall and fitness stations for Teacher Directed Physical Education (TDPE)
  • Classroom author kits with books and materials for all grade levels, DVDs about artists, mats for the school entrance and a picnic table
  • Books for the Central School library, teacher appreciation activities and luncheon, and stipends to teachers for classroom supplies and materials
  • Administrative costs and operating expenses are used for such things as hospitality (refreshments for meetings, recitals and events), paper, postage, etc.


Please support the Central 100% Fund today. Thank you!
