The Knoxville Elementary PTO discussed their recent work at the School Board’s meeting on Monday. Steve Linsley and Dave Garcia talked about recent fundraising efforts as well as what they have planned for the near future.
The transition from fundraisers that sold items to ones that involve pledges have been very successful. They reported that the spell-a-thon and jog-a-thon have both raised between $8000 and $12,000 in the past couple years.
The PTO continues to work on planning a field trip for every grade level as well as opportunities for speakers. They have an International Night planned for next Tuesday evening at Northstar Elementary where they plan on featuring around a dozen different countries with short presentations for students and parents alike.
