What can we accomplish in 2019-20
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 (2018-2019), the PTO had an operating budget of about $7,000. These funds came from fundraisers including catalog item sales, our second annual Trivia Night, school pictures, bake sales, Boxtops, spirit wear sales, clothing bin donations, 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, host 4 family fun nights, our second annual trivia night, beautification projects including: the gymnasium, blacktop games, and the beautiful Joe Pimentel mural. We also hosted our annual Thanksgiving luncheon for the local seniors, added to the 5th grader Tile Legacy Wall, offered school assemblies, held a teacher appreciation lunch, craft our spirit of beacon day float, installed two filtered water fountains, and performed community outreach to Sargent families and staff. We are proud of our achievements and thank you for making them a reality.
