Rockdale PTO getting ready for the new school year

By SARAH VREELAND
Rockdale PTO Treasurer

For those who may not know, the PTO is an organization of parents and teachers of Rockdale ISD. The PTO’s goal is to foster a nurturing and caring env ironment that strives for continued parent involvement in helping build a better educational environment for our children. We also promote a school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work with the resources we can provide and help make school fun.

Through membership dues and fund-raising for the PTO to be effective and truly representative of the school, it is essential to have parental involvement from as many parents as possible.

Many working parents feel that they cannot be included in the PTO because they cannot come to every meeting or be on campus during the day. There are endless possibilities in ways you can help. Whatever your own level of flexibility, Rockdale PTOalways appreciates their parent volunteers, as does our teachers and staff.

Keep in mind that by volunteering, you will get to enjoy interacting with the kids, become friends with other parents and accomplish things that truly make a difference. The PTO is able to donate funds to purchase educational materials and equipment for the schools as well as yearly scholarships for high school seniors.

For more information, contact us at rockdalepto@gmail.com or on Facebook at Rockdale PTO 2011-2012.

Officers for this school year are Cheryl Blackstock, president; Amy Funburg, vice president; Melissa Rey nosa, secretar y; Sarah Vreeland, treasurer.
