PTO News Update (November 2016) 

Thanks for all the hard work on our Fall Fundraiser.  The total raised was over $5000 for our school.  The PTO will have the final total once the final invoice is paid. 

Mark your calendars for WINTER FEST.  December 3rd from 9am to 1pm.  We will have breakfast and crafts with Santa from 9am to 10:45am. There will be a bazaar with vendors from 9am to 1pm.  We will also have a SILENT AUCTION and children’s book sale.  A portion of the proceeds from the silent auction and all the proceeds from the book sale will go to help cover medical expenses for one of our own Elon students.

If you or someone you know can help with the following, please contact Diana Rider at 434-509-5402 or drider1074@yahoo.com:

·         Volunteer an hour for Winter Fest

About the EES PTO
 
What does the PTO do?
The primary purpose of the Elon PTO is to raise money for various school projects. We sponsor events during the school year, including fundraisers, providing refreshments for school programs, T-Shirt sales, and support the School Store. Our PTO Fundraisers have helped provide:
 
  • A new school playground
  • Dictionary sets for the classrooms
  • $100 per teacher annually for school supplies
  • Babysitting services for after school parenting classes
  • AR Books for the library
  • Playground balls
 
How can you be involved?
 
All parents are a part of our PTO! Volunteering with the Elon PTO is a great way to be involved with the students and teachers at our school. You can show your support for our school by participating in fundraising activities and volunteering at PTO sponsored events. 
 
There are also many ways you can volunteer from home!  Ask a teacher or a board member today how you can help.
