The Francis Howell School District (FHSD) would like to thank all Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO) for their contributions and donations during the 2011-2012 school year. Collectively, FHSD PTOs have donated classroom items valued at $114,798.56, which have been used to continually promote and provide assistance to quality educational programs in our schools.
PTOs within FHSD have donated 39 SmartBoards; SMART Response Systems, an interactive student and classroom response and assessment tool; Apple iPads and accessories; Apple computers; projectors; cameras; gift cards; and much more.
FHSD PTOs provide assistance and educational support to our schools in various ways, such as hosting fundraisers, planning and coordinating social events and projects, volunteering in schools and encouraging parent involvement in schools. They are comprised of parent volunteers, the child’s first and most important teachers, who are committed to ensuring our students receive the best education possible. PTO members are not only supporters of education, but are partners in the development of the educational process. Members involved in school PTOs not only support student achievement, but serve as a liaison between the school, administration, community and ultimately our student’s families.
The Francis Howell School District would like to thank all PTO members for their dedication and commitment to bringing closer relationships between the home and school community. Your willingness to help in any way possible enables the Francis Howell community to reach beyond the four walls of the classroom.
