What can we accomplish in 2018-19
The sky is the limit… but we need your help! This year we would like to bring in more exciting and inspiring assemblies and field trips so the kids can have additional memories to cherish. We will continue our amazing projects including the Beautification Project, which is focused on aesthetically improving the school (we will be adding a mural to the cafeteria and gym), inside and out, and making Sargent a wonderful welcoming environment for students, staff, and families alike! Another big project will be continued improvements to the Recess Experience (we will be adding painted activities to our blacktop). We have a great outdoor space and we want to find ways to make the area more engaging for our very youngest pre-k students all the way up through our 5th graders. We are also striving to make the space inclusive for all our students (think sensory activities!). These goals will require many volunteers and some serious fundraising. We will be asking for input from the Sargent community so that your wants and needs are represented in the changes!
Last year, the PTO had an operating budget of about $7,000. These funds came from fundraisers including catalog sales, school pictures, bake sales, Boxtops, spirit wear sales, and raffles.
The money raised goes a long way to help make Sargent such a great school. Through these funds, we were able to fund field trips, give $1000 donation to the Calico Ball, host 4 family fun nights & trivia night, beautification projects in the auditorium, host a Thanksgiving luncheon for the local seniors, add to the 5th grader Tile Legacy Wall, offer school assemblies, host a teacher appreciation lunch and give each staff member a small gift, our spirit of beacon day float, and perform community outreach to Sargent families and staff. We are proud of our achievements and thank you for making them a reality.
