Greetings from Incoming Board 2010-2011

Posted Apr 27, 2010 | Category: 100 Percent, District 96, Executive Board, Fundraising, Volunteering

Central School PTO

Letter from Incoming Co-Presidents

2010-2011

Greetings Central Parents,

As another wonderful school year is coming to a close, we already are making our plans for what promises to be an exciting 2010-2011 year at Central! This past year, we have gone paperless. Consequently, the 2010-2011 PTO forms, which traditionally you have received in your child’s backpack, are now attached and available on the Central School PTO website (www.centralptonews.org)* as follows:

Committee Information & Volunteer Sign-up sheet – lists and describes each of our PTO committees;

Room Parent Volunteer Sign-up sheet – describes how you can help in your child’s classroom (Print out and return completed Committee and Room Parent forms to the PTO mailbox by Wednesday, May 12);

Student Directory & District 96 Calendar Order Form – (Print out and return completed form with payment to the PTO mailbox, by Wednesday, May 12);

Central 100% Fund Information & Contribution form – an optional way in which to donate directly to the PTO (If you choose the Fund, we would appreciate the completed form with your donation by Friday, May 28, 2010);

Auction flyer (caution 3.4 MB download) – provides information regarding our first auction, set for Friday, November 5, 2010 at PJ Klems (Mark your calendars!); and

Fundraising programs flyer – lists and describes other Fundraisers sponsored by the PTO, including brand new ones such as Riverside Foods and Great Lakes Scrip.

Central is more than just our school; it is a community. While we are fortunate that Central has a phenomenal team of teachers and staff, the excellent education that our children receive is bolstered by our efforts as parents. Countless studies show that children perform better in the classroom when parents actively participate in the school. Our PTO provides many opportunities to get involved, whether as a Room Parent or Committee Volunteer, or through participation at our events. Even if your time is limited, there is a place for you in Central’s PTO!

Last, but very important, are our Fundraisers. New next year is our Auction, which will be held on Friday, November 5, 2010, at PJ Klems. We are partnering with Central’s teachers and staff to make this event a night to remember. The money we raise from our Auction and other Fundraisers allows us to sponsor many programs including Artist-in Residence, Book Fair, Cultural Arts, Ecology Club, Flying Carpet Club, Science-in-a Can, Family Fun Nights, Ice Cream Social, and much, much more.

It will be our pleasure to serve next year as your PTO Co-Presidents. We are looking forward to a successful and fun 2010-2011 school year. In the meantime, browse through the above forms, and have a wonderful summer!

Warmly,

Samantha Durst (Pres-sam@centralptonews.org)
Jeannine Glavas (Pres-jeann@centralptonews.org)
Incoming Co-Presidents, Central PTO, 2010-2011

Fundraising Update

Posted Nov 2, 2009 | Category: 100 Percent, Fundraising

This information was originally posted on November 2, 2009. Please note that the article refers to events from a previous school year.

fundraising courtesy of beyond warOur Fall Fund raising Drives are completed. A heartfelt thanks to all who contributed.

We raised over $11,000. While we are grateful for all who supported our endeavors, we are $5000 less than we budgeted. Like all of us are doing during these difficult times, the PTO board is having to review our 2009 – 2010 plans.

If you planned on supporting the PTO this year

  • but you missed the Innisbrook fundraiser
  • but you missed the Original Works fundraiser,
  • you can still support our endeavors through the 100% club.

100% means that 100% of your tax-deductible contribution goes to
PTO programming for your child.

Our 100% form is here: Central School 100% donation form

What your child receives from the PTO is:

  • field trips,
  • programs for our school,
  • two wild and carefree Family Fun nights,
  • an over-the-top Book fair,
  • an all-you-can-eat Ice Cream social ,
  • a lunch book club,
  • monthly Cultural Arts presentations
  • and many other extras for your child.

We are hoping for 100% participation in at least one of fundraisers.

If you have supported our fundraising efforts this year, we are extremely grateful.

But if you haven’t had a moment to do so.… any check, cash, money order you can contribute is very much appreciated.

Thank you for your support.

Allyn Pilewski
PTO President






Final Days for the PTO 100% Fund

Posted Sep 11, 2009 | Category: 100 Percent, Fundraising, Reminders

This information was originally posted on September 11, 2009. Please note that the article refers to events from a previous school year.

Central 100% Fundraising RoadrunnerAs an alternative to asking for countless volunteer hours for numerous fund raising events the PTO has developed a simplified alternative, The 100% Fund.  Central PTO’s 100% Fund requests a one time contribution that covers all of our financial needs for the year.  Unlike many fund raising events this approach is designed to be 100% tax deductible. The suggested contribution is $100.00.

With this contribution the PTO supports numerous educational, cultural and social opportunities for all Central students.  Last year the PTO used a portion of these contributions to leverage a Illinois Art Council grant to bring in a performing arts group, Striding Lions, to help students write and perform One Act plays about geometry.  Every year the PTO funds cultural field trips and volunteers staff a Jr. Great Books lunch discussion for students.

We hope to have 100% participation in the PTO.  During these hard economic times, the PTO does realize that some families can not afford such a large contribution.  Any contribution is much appreciated.  If contributing is not feasible at this time, please consider donating a few hours of time.  Your children will love seeing you volunteer.

Monday is the final day for our Fall 100% Fund drive. If you have contributed, Thank You.   If you have not, please consider funding the PTO.

You will find the donation form here Central 100% fund.
