Volunteers are always needed for this event and volunteers’ children attend free of charge. If you have questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Adrienne Spelker.

New PTO Volunteer Initiative

One of the goals for the new PTO Board is to increase our number of volunteers. All the events and programs we run throughout the course of the year are dependant on YOU stepping forward and helping. And we need more help! Therefore, we are adding an additional incentive to those who volunteer.  A $25 gift card to a local business will be given to one volunteer at each PTO meeting, done randomly through a drawing. For each event you volunteer at you are given 1 chance in the drawing. For each leadership role you take on, you get 10 chances in the drawing! If you are interested in volunteering, but don’t know how, please contact us pto@liljapto.org. May the odds be ever in your favor!

Box Top Submission Deadline

Each year Box Tops provides nearly a thousand dollars for our PTO.  It is easy to help us raise these funds.  All you have to do is take a look at the products already on your pantry shelves, then clip and collect the box tops as you use the products. Check your shelves for any box tops that are expiring soon as once they expire, we can’t collect money for them.  You don’t have to donate any money, all it requires is a little bit of your time.  You can attach the box tops to one of the submission forms or even easier, put them in a ziplock bag.  Once you have them collected, send them into school with your child.  Here is a list of participating products . The deadline for your first submission is Monday, October 24th.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at pto@liljapto.org or any member of the board directly.
