What Does the PTO Do?
Every year the PTO spends a lot of time and energy fundraising to benefit Macungie Elementary School, but you may wonder, what have we been up to? Check back on this section of our website often for updates on the different things that PTO has sponsored to benefit our school, students & teachers!
Bottle Filling Station: Covid -19 has certainly changed many things for our school, but one of those things is that we are no longer going to have water fountains available. The PTO has sponsored the purchase and installation of two of the new bottle filling stations at Macungie.
Face Masks: PTO has provided customized protective face masks for all of our teachers this year.
Field Trips: Although this year may not be the year for field trips, in the past the PTO has been able to cover the costs of fieldtrips for every student. This year, depending on our ability to fundraise, we hope to help offset some of the costs for fieldtrips.
Take Home Folders: You know that Tiger folder that your student brings home all of their important papers in? That is provided by the PTO! Make sure you check out the back cover of that folder each year for important information on how to support your school.
Teacher Stipends: We know that teacher spend their own money on supplies for their classrooms each year, so we allow each teacher a small stipend they can use for classroom supplies.
