Dear Van Antwerp Families,
With the 2016- 2017 school year now underway, we wanted to introduce you to the mission of the Van Antwerp PTO and ask for your support.
The Van Antwerp PTO is a nonprofit organization comprised of parents, teachers and staff. Our mission is to provide programs and activities that encourage social growth for the students, support the teachers and provide opportunity for our families to stay active in their student’s growth.
We further this mission by sponsoring the school socials (dances), the Ice Cream Social, the Book Fair, 8th Grade Moving Up dance, the Earth Day activities, providing WEB leader supplies and providing program and teacher support.
Last year alone the PTO placed over 100 new books in classroom and library circulation, entertained your children at the variety of socials, and provided support for the Turkey Trot, Community Day, the Wildlife speaker and Earth Day programs. The PTO also provided supplies for the WEB Leader program, 8th grade moving up program, and technology, math and home and career classrooms.
To help defray the costs associated with this programming, we are asking for your support of the annual Donation Drive. Historically, the success of the Donation Drive has allowed us to maintain all of our programming. We are hopeful that the 2016-2017 Donation Drive will meet with similar success.
We are asking each family to contribute at their comfort level. Donations are completely optional and any size donation is appreciated. For each donation of $35 or more, you will receive a VA car magnet. You can proudly display your support of Van Antwerp Middle School!
Please also check to see if your employer offers a match.
Just complete the form attached and mail to the address listed below by December 31, 2016. Contributions are tax deductible and 100% of all donations go to fund programs and activities in the school community!
On behalf of the teachers and students we support, we thank you for your contribution.
