News from the Peebles PTO

Mrs. Applegate’s Third Grade class with their overflowing and winning change jar, to benefit a local family.

Many wonderful things have been happening at Peebles Elementary with the help of the school’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  The Santa Shop was a success with all students having the opportunity to shop for family members.  Nineteen local vendors were set up in large gym of the elementary.  Students were able to shop for two days, and it was open to the public one evening from 3:30-6:30 p.m.
The PTO also hosted a fund drive to support Stephanie Stephens, parent of students at PES/PHS, and her family. Stephanie recently underwent a lung transplant and her family has had to endure much travel and financial hardship.  The PTO wanted to do something to help the family and show our support.  They developed a competition among all of the homeroom classes with the class to raise the most money was to receive a party to celebrate.
Mrs. Applegate’s third grade homeroom claimed first place, raising $600.  Mrs. Music’s third grade class was the second place homeroom, raising over $100.  The classes both opted to donate the cost of the parties back to the fundraiser for the family.  PES raised a total of approximately $1500 for the Stephens family. The school is proud to have such a caring staff and students.
The PTO is also offering a drawing for students who bring in 100 Box Tops at a time.  The drawing will take place in May near the end of the school year and will be for a $50 iTunes gift card or $50 Walmart gift card.
Upcoming events that the PTO will assist with include the Science Fair, Right to Read Week, the Spring Book Fair, the Color Run, and much more.
The Peebles Elementary PTO meets on the last Tuesday of every month at 3:15 p.m. in the school library.  They invite local community members and parents to attend their meetings and hear about what is going on in the school.
The PTO is always happy to have more individuals sign up as volunteers.  Anyone interested in helping Peebles Elementary School continue to “spur into success” by donating time, can contact one of the PTO officers via the school’s front office.
