Dear Trebein Families,
We have been successful since our inception in 2012. One of our goals was to become a community and have a lot of fun! We would like to continue this for the 2020-2021 school year. Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns at TrebeinPresident@gmail.com.
Please join us for our monthly PTO meetings:
- When: Tuesday evenings (see dates below)
- Time: 7:00 p.m.
- Location: Zoom meetings until further notice. Please find the link monthly on our Trebein PTO Facebook page.
Why come to a PTO meeting?
- Connect with other parents
- Be the first to hear about important news and upcoming events at school
- Have a voice in activities and programs the PTO supports
- Learn how the students and staff at Trebein benefit from PTO
- Volunteer your time, at school or at home, to make a difference in our community
The general PTO meetings are held on the following dates:
- September 8
- October 13
- November 10
- December 8
- January 12
- February 9
- March 9
- April 13
- May 11
Other dates for events and socials can be found in our calendar section. The easiest way to fund-raise for our school is Box Tops and Kroger Rewards! Please sign up your Kroger Rewards Card and collect your box tops. These programs raise THOUSANDS of dollars for our school each year, and they are at no additional cost to you! Kroger Rewards were $5400 last year, and box tops were over $2300! That is a lot of money to pass up, if you aren’t participating. Two other simple ways are to link your Amazon Smile account to Trebein Elementary. Please take a few minutes to help us with these easy ways to fund and costs you nothing!
Why is the PTO important?
The PTO funds extra programs and equipment that are not in the school budget. We assist teachers in the classroom and provide extra help and supplies when needed. We will offer social functions to bring together our student body as a proud community and hope you will get involved with our organization. We also fund field trips, as the district supplies little funding for field trip activities.
Please take time to read the monthly newsletter which will keep you up to date. We also publish a monthly school calendar to help make sure no one misses those important dates. Besides emails from Lisa Walk via the Trebein Messenger, you can also like us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Trebein-PTO/ to stay informed. We also post most of the event photos in albums on the Facebook Page.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to 2020-2021 with all of you!
Your PTO Board
