Provide gifts to school such as supplemental classroom books and games, recess equipment, Welcome Packet planners/folders and other school equipment.
Bring the JMP community together with our school evening family events such as the Family Social, movie night, restaurant nights and Theatre week.
Help to promote cultural awareness through our Diwali, Lunar New Year, Thanksgiving Feast events and assemblies.
Provide opportunities for the students to learn about purchasing products and giving to others such as Book Fair, Holiday Boutique and Plant Sale.
Coordinate Teacher Appreciation Week to recognize the dedication of our teachers and staff.
Top reasons for volunteering:
The smiles and excitement on our children's faces when they see us in school.
To learn more about what happens in school and in the classroom during the day.
Because we care about our children's education and want to help improve their education.
To meet and socialize with other parents and to meet your children's friends.
To find out more about our children's teachers and how they teach and interact with our children.
Because we believe in volunteering in the community and the PTO is a great way to volunteer and have fun!
