Fundraising Q & A
Q: Why fundraising?
A: There are many student and teacher needs that are not covered by the general fund. Some of the "extras" include field trips, bussing for field trips, Scholastic News for classrooms, etc.
Q: What does the PTO do?
A: Newaygo no longer has a PTO (formerly Newaygo Jr. Lions PTO). It has been a challenge to get consistent PTO leadership with the busy schedules that families maintain. Therefore, fundraising has moved "in house."
Q: Who is in charge of this fundraising then?
A: Teachers and administrators at the elementary buildings have taken over the management of these fundraisers.
Q: What can I do to help?
A: Support our teachers when asked to volunteer for something and help your child with these fundraisers so they are successful!
