Parent Teacher Organization

Welcome Back! As Sharon Elementary School PTO officers we hope to do our part to help make this a great year at Sharon Elementary, as well as to continue to foster involvement and support from our Sharon families.

PTO Programs

Our primary objective as a PTO is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources, and services that will enrich and maximize the education and well-being of every SES child and benefit the school. To meet this important objective, we fundraise. Here are a few programs that we sponsor and/or support: Phonics Program (Reading A to Z), Jag of the Month, Jr. Beta Club/National Elementary Honor Society, School Supplies for Teachers, Family Movie Nights, Teacher Appreciation Events and more. In addition to these regular items, each year we sponsor a large project of choice costing under/around $10K: during the 2015-2016 school year we added a new set of swings to the SES playground, during 2016-2017 PTO financed one new set of 32 Chrome books with cart, and now our ambitious goals are to build sunshades covering most of the existing playground structures. This project might seem a little overwhelming as our vendors’ proposal currently is slightly over $40K, so we will need all the help and support we can get in order to protect our SES kiddos from Georgia sun. We understand that it might take us more than 1 year to implement this. We welcome alternative proposals from companies you might know, as well as leads to donors that could help us to finance this big goal.

PTO Fundraising
In order to fund our programs/projects, we run a number of fun events each year, which include Bingo Nights, Jag Jam, Santa Shop, Basket Raffle... In addition, we participate in Box Tops, Labels for Education, Publix Partners, Kroger Community Rewards, Ingles Advantage for Schools, and run regular Spirit Nights with local vendors (come join us for our Chick-fil-A Nights every second Tuesday of each month!). You were asking – and we listened! This year our fall events will include our first Festival and Craft Fair, while in the spring we plan to invite you to Father-Daughter Dance and Mother-Son Board Game Night! Please check the attached calendar and plan to volunteer and/or attend.
