PTO in Need of Volunteers
Wednesday, May 2, 2012 • Posted May 10, 2012

Your Blanco PTO is in dire need of volunteers for the next school year. The current board members have almost come to the end of their tenure and new board members are to be elected at the last meeting of the school year, which will take place at 6pm on Thursday, May 10, at Papa Joey’s at their new location on the square. Unless new members come forward, the PTO may have to go inactive. That would be great shame, since the PTO has contributed greatly at all three campuses.

The canopy that shades the elementary playground equipment was purchased by PTO with walk-a-thon funds. This year’s walk-a-thon money will go towards classroom sets of electronic readers for the entire elementary school to use. PTO also funded the pre-k thru 5th grade field trip transportation. PTO also supported the middle school by funding a motivational speaker for students before STAAR testing. PTO continues a tradition of honoring three high school students with scholarships for college tuition assistance. PTO also holds staff appreciation breakfast/luncheons at all three campuses. All this would not be possible without the help of volunteers who dedicated their time for Father-Daughter Dance, walk-a-thon, and movie nights held at the elementary campus as fundraisers.

We live in a wonderful community, and want the best for our children. If everyone does a little, no-one has to do a lot. You don’t have to be a parent, or a teacher, to join PTO. Grandparents, aunts and uncles, and neighbors are welcome. Volunteers are sought for the positions of: President and Vice-President of each campus, Treasurer, and Membership Coordinator. If you are interested in keeping our PTO thriving, email or contact your school campus office.
