The primary goal of the PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is to provide much-needed supplies for teachers that include science and STEM equipment, flexible seating, educational rugs, sports and playground equipment, books, butterfly kits for the entire 4th grade, $2,000 towards transportation costs for the 5th grade Springfield trip, and other supplies teachers need throughout the year.
Thank you for your support of our recent Walkathon! Your donations have raised $16,967.70! We'll be able to provide a lot of new STEM and science supplies!

Trees Around the District
Would you like to participate in our Trees Around the District fundraiser?
Classrooms and organizations are invited to decorate a 4 ft. tree (provided by PTO) any way they want, and sell raffle tickets to raise money for their class or organization. Contact any PTO Board Member for more details or an Info Sheet.
Trees must be decorated by November 17 so we can pick them up.
We will display the trees in the Elementary School, Manteno Library, Manteno High School, and finally, the Leo Hassett Center where the raffle winners will be drawn at the end of the evening on Dec. 2 (Santa Comes to Town/Lighting of Main Street).
Please continue to send your empty or unused toner and ink cartridges to the school office. We recycle them and earn money to provide additional funds for classroom supplies. If you would like us to pick your cartridges up, email Sue at email@example.com.
