NO PTO NEXT YEAR :(

On Wednesday MAY 3rd you’re invited to attend the PTO General Meeting 10:30 to 11:30 in the STEM LAB.

At this meeting, the PTO will be holding elections for new PTO Board Members. There are many open positions and we encourage you to join the board if you have an interest.

***If there are NO New Board Members, THERE WILL NOT BE A PTO NEXT YEAR.***

Any Candeo parent, grand parent or friend of Candeo is eligible and encouraged.

If you have questions or if you have an interest in joining the PTO Board, please email CandeoPTO@gmail.com

No experience necessary. We just need your enthusiasm.

Today is The Last Day to Save Our PTO

The Next PTO General Meeting and ELECTIONS will be on May 3rd.
 
Everyone is invited. Nominations for open 2017 – 2017 PTO Board Positions will be accepted through April 1, 2017.
 
If there are no nominations, the PTO is at risk of not being around next year.
 
Why should YOU join? We’ll, I don’t want you to miss out the good feelings I have about everything that the PTO does to help the students, teachers and staff. SERIOUSLY, it just makes you feel good and it helps your children develop an altruistic nature. I don’t want your children to miss out either.
 
There are also some negative effects when parents don’t step up. The PTO helps students, teachers, staff and the Candeo Community as a whole have a better experience. We try to make the journey more fun and a little easier.
 
-Without PTO Board Members none of this possible.
 
-Without PTO Board Members, enhancements and activities that enrich the educational experiences of our children just don’t happen.
 
-Without new PTO Board Members, there will not be a PTO next year.
 
Let’s not let our children and our teachers down! Every parent wants the best for their child and PTO involvement can help parents make noticeable, long-term improvements on behalf of their child, other students, the teachers, the staff and the community. Please step up now to help. Join the PTO Board or nominate someone else that you think would be an asset. Go to https://candeopto.wordpress.com/2017/01/12/seeking-new-pto-board-members/
 
Thank you for letting me be the Candeo PTO President for the past two year. It has been so much fun! If you have questions, please email me at CandeoPTO@gmail.com

May 3 PTO General Meeting and ELECTIONS The PTO is calling for nominations for open 2017-2018 PTO Board positions. Yup, that’s right, we are getting ready for the next school year already. You can nominate yourself or someone else. Nominations will be accepted through April 1, 2017. Board members elected in this process will be encourage to serve a two-year term beginning June 30, 2017 and culminating June 30, 2019.

Why Join The Board? I have always volunteered for things like Wed. Folders, Festivals, Field Trips and copies. It’s been something that I have enjoyed and it helped me stay connect with my children, their friends and what going on their classroom. I got a lot out of it.

Joining the Board, helped me get even more connected, but it also had a significantly positive effect on my children. They are now more connected too. They are happy to help, they love their school, they get better grades and they feel that they have a part in making the student events and teacher support efforts more fun and successful.

So…. Why should YOU join?  We’ll, I don’t want you miss out the good feelings I have about everything that the PTO does to help the students, teachers and staff.  SERIOUSLY, it just makes you feel good and it helps your children develop an altruistic nature. I don’t want your children to miss out either.

There are also some negative effects when parents don’t step up.  The PTO helps students, teachers, staff and the Candeo Community as a whole have a better experience. We try to make the journey more fun and easier. Our purpose is to enhance and support the educational experience at Candeo, to develop a closer connection between home and school by encouraging parental involvement, and improving the environment through volunteer and financial support. Without PTO Board Members none of this possible. Without PTO Board Members support, enhancement and activities that enrich the educational experiences of our children just doesn’t happen.

Let’s not let our children and our teachers down. Every parent wants the best for their child and PTO involvement can help parents make noticeable, long-term improvements on behalf of their child, other students, the teachers, the staff and the community. Please step up now to help. Join the PTO Board. Go to https://candeopto.wordpress.com/2017/01/12/seeking-new-pto-board-members/

Thank you for letting me be the Candeo PTO President for the past two year. It has been so much fun!
