What can we accomplish in 2020-21
The Sargent PTO's goal is to support the teachers, administration, staff and students at Sargent Elementary School through volunteerism, fundraising and idea fulfillment. We want to help our Sargent Stars shine.
This year will be one of our most challenging yet with the global pandemic of COVID-19. The school year will look much different than in the past. Our fundraising will be taking a back seat because we do not want to overburden our school families in these uncertain times, yet we must find a way to support our hardworking teachers and staff as they enter a new year of instruction. In that respect, we ask any parents, caregivers or community members to help out Sargent School in any way they can, either through time, money or brain and body power.
Do you have a talent to share? Can you spare an hour a month to volunteer? We need you. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see how you can help.
The PTO has an operating budget of about $7,000. These funds came from fundraisers including catalog item sales, Trivia Night, school pictures, bake sales, Boxtops, spirit wear sales, clothing bin donations, food and entry fees at events, and raffles.
The money raised goes a long way to help make Sargent such a great school! The PTO has spearheaded beautification projects such as creating a hallway mural with Joe Pimental, painting the gym, making a colorful footpath on the playground blacktop; gardening projects like creating a teaching space/sensory garden with touchable, tactile, fragrant plants, and creating garden beds; student support projects like donating backpacks with school supplies, helping fund students on field trips, and stocking the school food pantry. Each year we add to the 5th grade tile legacy wall, offer school assemblies and scholarships, hold a teacher appreciation lunch, and perform community outreach to Sargent families and staff. We are proud of our achievements and thank you for making them a reality.
