Parent Teacher Organization

The PTO is the parent organization that is dedicated to helping SRMS through building a sense of community and supplying items to individual classrooms and the school.

PTO NEWS

The PTO would like to offer a warm welcome to all of our new students and welcome back to all of our returning students. We hope the beginning of the school year has gone smoothly for everyone.

With the start of the new school year, we want to let everyone know what wonderful activities we have planned for the year. The PTO is committed to supporting our teachers and school and to help develop a sense of community within SRMS. All of this is only possible with your help. If you want to help plan these activities then please come to our meetings on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 at Starbucks on 17th and Jenny Lee.

 
 
 

Trunk or Treat-October 30th 

This is a great way for our children to trick or treat with their friends. All participants decorate their cars and then park in the parking lot while the kids go from car to car collecting treats. This a fun activity for all involved! You do not need to hand out treats to participate but the more the merrier. Just come on over and enjoy some trick or treating.

Fall  Lock in- October 17th

This fun fundraiser is a great way to get a night out for all of us parents!  This activity is for 1st through 6th grade students. Students some to the school for a night of fun with dinner, movies, activities and a sleep over with their friends at school.  The money from this fundraiser has gone to purchase new items for our library. The elementary kids love this activity but we need plenty of volunteers to make this work, especially dads!

Coat and Food Drive- November 10 - November 21

One of the focuses of Montessori education is to give back to our community.  What better way than to have a coat and food drive as the weather turns colder?  The food bank greatly appreciates the food that we donate each year.

Holiday Families- December 1 - December 19

This is a wonderful activity to help teach our children that Christmas and the Holidays are a time for giving.  Each family will have the opportunity to choose a family in need from our community and help provide needed items and gifts for that family for Christmas.

Teacher Appreciation Luncheon and Week- Fall Appreciation - November 6th

Spring TBA

Every year we sponsor a luncheon in the fall and week in the spring to show our appreciation to our wonderful staff for all that they do for our children. Activities include wish list boxes and a special luncheon.

Garage Sale- TBA 

A wonderful fundraiser for our school, and a great opportunity for to de-clutter your home and garage!  Even if you cannot help chair this event, please plan now and start saving those things you would like to get rid of. The more donations for sale the better!  We will also need people to help work the garage sale.

Family Fun Nights
These are special days throughout the year where we get together as a SRMS community and just have some fun. These activities may include Open Gym Nights, Bowling, Roller Skating, Ice Skating and Game Night. Look on the bulletin board for announcements concerning events. 

As you can see the PTO has many exciting activities planned for this year. Participating in these events is a great way to meet other families as well as support our staff and school. We hope to see everyone at our meetings!
