A Letter of Appreciation:
Dear PTO, I would like to thank you for volunteering your time to make the school a better place. You have made an impact on the students, faculty, and families. Most think of the PTO in the role of fundraising, which allows the school to purchase items that are outside the school budget. This is very important, but only a small part of what they do. You help parents cope with dropping off their kids for the first time by providing coffee and pastries at the BooHoo Breakfast! They also bring our school family together with the movie nights and Fall Festival. They arrive early to give coffee and donuts to the teachers to make them feel valued, cherished and appreciated. The PTO informs parents and Ms. Rebecca of upcoming events, ideas for JBMA, and making the school better each year. At the end of the day, I would like to personally thank the PTO for taking time from their schedules to make our experience the best it can be.
