Dear Parent’s,

Northeast actively seeks parent VOLUNTEERS! We feel active involvement in the educational
process is valuable for all concerned. A wealth of TALENT and EXPERIENCE exists among our
parents, and we hope you will be willing to share some if it.

Name_______________________ Phone___________________ E-mail________________________

Best time to call:__________________ Can you periodically volunteer during school hours?_______
                                                                           OR evenings?_______


Would you like to be:

       A Room Parent?______      For Grade______            Teacher____________________________
       A Room Parent Helper?_____

(A Room Parent contacts other parents in their child’s classroom to assist with school events, and
activities. He/She works directly with the teacher, and the Room Parent Coordinator.)

The PTO is not an elite group of a few parents…it includes every parent of every elementary child.
We hope to promote cooperation and teamwork. Students who know their parents are involved, and
communicate regularly with their school usually work harder, feel more confident, and do better in
their schoolwork.

       WE ARE NO LONGER COLLECTING MEMBERSHIP DUES: Every parent is considered a
member of the PTO. To make your tax deductible family donation simply send cash or a check
payable to Northeast PTO to the school in the amount of: $5_____, $10_____, $15_____, or


PTO meetings take place in the elementary library from 6:30p.m. - 7:30p.m., on the 2nd Thursday of
every month except November, March, and May.
