Welcome to the 2015 – 16 School Year

Dear SBES Parents,

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at Swansboro Elementary School. The PTO would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning parents. We hope that this school year will bring you and your children many positive relationships and experiences. We hope that you will all consider supporting our school by volunteering and supporting our fundraisers throughout the school year. Working together we can truly make a difference at SBES!

PTO Programs & Fundraising

Our primary objective as a PTO is to provide our school with funds to support SBES programs, resources and services that are no longer covered by our school budget. To meet this important objective we must fundraise. Although it may not be our favorite responsibility, it is a necessary one. Last year the PTO had four main fundraisers: Fall Festival, Santa Shop, Read-A-Thon, and Fat Fellas BBQ plate sales. We also continue to collect BOX TOPS and actively participate in the TerraCycle Recycle Program. Over the past couple of years, some of the funds collected have been used to provide the following educational and recreational needs: overhead projectors for each classroom, new sound system for the all-purpose room, tablets for 5th grade, resurfacing and 4 new basketball goals for the joint playground, and a new large play set for the K-2 playground and resurfacing the 3-5 playground. This year, our goals are to enhance the 3-5 playground with new additions, a new sign for the school’s entrance and purchase new soccer goals. As always, we hope to be able to continue to provide support supplies and materials for our teachers and students.

Become a Volunteer…Why YOU should get involved

As you can see, we are a busy group which is why we need your help, and so do our teachers! Whether you have 30 minutes or a couple of hours, your ideas, time and talents are truly needed. We are about parents and teachers working together toward a common goal. That goal, simply stated, is creating a better school and quality education that allows our students to thrive and do their best work. We look forward to meeting you and working together to make a difference.

PTO Communication

We will send information by emails and flyers in your children’s folders. Soon you will see contact information for our PTO board, a calendar of events, volunteer opportunities and other useful information. For more information, please email us at swansboropto@hotmail.com.

Swansboro Elementary PTO would once again like to extend a warm welcome and wonderful return to another successful school year!
