PTO

Thank you so much for signing up for PTO!


Being a part of PTO means you get to take an active role in giving back to your community and most importantly being involved in your child(ren)’s life at James H. Hendrix Elementary IB World School. As PTO members, we strive to create new and exciting activities that add to the quality of the classrooms and the interactions outside of them. We exist by the grace of our wonderful volunteers and it is very heartwarming that you chose to be a part of that with us!

Signing up is the first step, but we would love for you to have a bigger part during some of the activities we have planned for the kids and teachers of Hendrix throughout the year.

We try to contribute in many ways! In the past, we've provided goodie bags for every student that made the A Honor Roll, we assisted in Terrific Kid ceremonies, we contributed funds for a color poster printer for all the teachers to use, we bought books for every child and every classroom in our school and purchased books for our Hendrix library, as well as our 100BC program and we donated bilingual books for Nicaragua.

We provided outdoor toys for the playgrounds. We assisted during field trips and programs for the school, we bought water bottles for the Fun Run, we collected Box Tops, we hosted a catered lunch for all the teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week, and many more activities.
Of course, to be able to do all of this, we need all hands on deck. The more people get involved, the more we can do.

Aside from people, we also need funds. This is why fundraising is very important to us as an organization. We fundraiser in several ways: twice a year during Book Fair, twice a year through Spartan Marketing and several times a year during Spirit Night at Chick-Fil-A and Papa John’s. If you are available to help us with any of these activities, we would be incredibly grateful to you. You could help out a few hours during Book Fair (for example on the day your child’s Book Fair visit is scheduled), help us during Rock n Fun day (when kids who participated in Spartan Marketing fundraiser get to play on bouncy houses in the gym), or help us distribute items from the fundraiser once they arrive at school or simply help make flyers for one of our Spirit Nights.


If you would like to contribute in an even more substantial way, please consider becoming a PTO Officer for this year. We have several positions open and would love to have you on our team! Our e-mail address is hendrixpto@gmail.com. (Please feel free to leave either myself or Joyce a message anytime at this e-mail address, as I do try to check it frequently.)

Sincerely,


Dawn M. Medlock, PTO President
Joyce Hanssen, PTO Vice President
