I’m sure you know that we are fortunate to have a phenomenal PTO. Our PTO organizes and coordinates many family events for the community, including the Book Fairs, the Halloween Hustle and the Fall Carnival. Our PTO generously reimburses our teachers $200 each year for classroom supplies. The 5th Grade Memory Book is a gift from our PTO! These are just a few highlights of events that demonstrate their commitment to our students and to you, our families.
I’m pleased to share some exciting news with you!! Our PTO recently approved a donation of $20, 000 to enhance the technology at Center. We will purchase an iPad cart and a Chrome Book cart, each cart with 25 devices!! Just visit Mrs. Giuggio's blog or our teachers' websites to see how technology is enhancing learning for your student.
Please join me in thanking our PTO executive board members: Kerri Campbell, Karen Desrosier, Laurie Benson, Melissa Cybulski, Jenna Papadopulos, Lyndsey Nuzzo, and Erin Lau. There are countless other chair persons for our annual events whose work make a generous purchase such as the carts possible. You are an inspiring group of parents and your tireless energy is amazing! I extend my gratitude from your entire community , but most especially from our students.
Many of you have joined us at PTO events and supported fundraisers such as Square 1 Art. So I thank you for your ongoing support. I’m including a link to the PTO website for your convenience if you would like to explore ways to become more involved in PTO happenings or if you’d like to consider a contribution through the annual giving.
I hope you're enjoying the preview to spring. There was definitely spring energy in the air at Center today!
My best to all.
Donna Hutton, Principal
