In addition to these fundraising events, we have shopping fundraisers such as School Toolbox, Mabel's Label's, Stop & Shop A+, and Harrow's Pies.
We would also love some team members to help build corporate and community relationships. Opportunities include event sponsors, website & app advertisers, and auction & raffle items.
|Chair:||Julie Cave (seeking co-chair!)|
Essential to our goal of community engagement, we host a number of different events throughout the year. The Events Committee is organized into two team types:
The Core Events Team works to plan, organize and ensure completion of the common aspects among all our events throughout the year, and to help support the Specific Event Teams.
Specific Event Teams work on the creative and customized aspects of a certain event during just that time of the year.
Grab some friends and volunteer to help with the Core Team or a Specific Event (or two!)
In 2019-2020, our Community Events are:
|Chair:||Hilary L. Burke & Caroline Sommer|
Essential to our image and delivery of information, this team uses various media to distribute all communication for the PTO.
But we've simplified this job! Going green means no more paper flyers, and we've created unique essential graphics for all our events, so no design experience needed now either!
The Chair / Co-Chairs create/initiate all the messaging, and orchestrate the various team members with their media:
|Chair:||Vacant (former chair, Bonnie Thornborough, will help you learn!)|
The Curriculum Enrichment committee helps to make lots of fun learning happen in the schools. Plus, members get to see those smiling faces at the exciting events! The committee co-chairs work with principals, teachers and staff liaison/s to coordinate, schedule and manage payment to our special guests. They also attend periodic North Shore Arts Council meetings to learn about possible educator-performers to fit curricular needs.
CE Team Members organize and recruit volunteers to take photos and write program summaries for our blog. Volunteer to attend just one (or two!) for your child's grade, and share the experience!
|Chair:||Colleen Regan & Meghan Randall|
The Teacher Wishes co-chairs work with principals and teachers to manage the applications, selection and payments for Teacher Wishes. Teachers rely on these special classroom items such as subscriptions, books, games, innovative devices and flexible furniture.
Team members help document the use of these items, including photos and writing for blog.
|Chair:||Bonnie Thornborough, Danielle O'Heir and Kimberly Alberta (Spofford Pond) + Caroline Sommer (Cole)|
A wonderful network of parent photographers and a core design team work together to capture the special memories of every child in the Cole and Spofford Pond schools. A great chance to be in the classroom or at activities with your child and their classmates! No photography experience required. We need responsible parents for every classroom who advocate for every child's smile. Your time is extremely appreciated!
|Chair:||Elizabeth Palmer, Rebecca Seaha|
Co-chairs organize and help facilitate a week of gratitude for all our Cole and Spofford Pond teachers and staff: May 4-8, 2020. Team members help support with hanging cards, luncheon set-up and clean-up, plus gifts.
