FREEDOM TRAIL ELEMENTARY PTO!
2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR
The Freedom Trail Elementary Parent Teacher Organization’s mission is to enhance the educational opportunities for our students, and to promote positive community spirit among students, families, and staff. If you have a child that attends Freedom Trail, you automatically belong to the PTO! There are no dues or membership fees. We encourage you to be as active as possible - together we can create lasting memories for our children.
The best way for our supporters to shop on Amazon is by clicking on the School Rewards banner. After you click the link, the Amazon home page will appear. If you see the letters “fretraelepto” in the site URL, you're right where you need to be! Just shop as you normally would and Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchase (typically between 4% and 15%) to us.
Don't forget to share this link with your family, friends and neighbors - happy shopping!
We would like to give a huge thank you to our FTES families and staff for your generous support over the last few months.
Our first ever mumkins sale was a huge success! Although it was pouring rain on delivery day, we were able to get everyone their flowers to enjoy throughout this season and we raised just over $7,100. At our Fall Festival, we were lucky enough to have amazing sunny weather and over 700 people attended! We raised almost $7,500 at this event. Lastly, the fall book fair was busy and we raised $3,200 for our school! None of these events would be possible without the hard work by our many volunteers – we thank you for giving us your time, energy, and dedication!
It’s been a bit of a whirlwind since school started and we are proud to announce that we raised close to $18,000! This money is used by the PTO to fund the amazing enrichment programs our children know and love, and to provide our classrooms with additional supplies and technology. Our annual budget includes expenses for school assemblies such as author visits, Columbus Zoo visit, and COSI on Wheels ($5,000), Enrichment Day ($3,900), Pioneer Day ($2,000), fifth grade send-off and plaque ($1,600), Brain Games ($1,500), as well as many other great activities sponsored by the PTO. We will also be investing in a new web climber for our playground!
