•   Submitting Monies
•   All cash and checks should be turned over to the Treasurer within 7 days of collection.
•   All cash and checks should be handed directly to the Treasurer or left in the safe at the school office.
•   Complete the yellow Cash/Check Receipt Form and submit each time you turn over monies to the Treasurer.
•   Requesting Checks
•   Please submit the green Check Request Form for each vendor invoice or for personal reimbursement for PTO purchases.
•   Attach all receipts and invoices to form and place in green Treasurer’s folder in PTO file in the Volunteer Work Room or
    mail directly to Treasurer (Ellen Oberle, 616 Aberdeen Way, Southlake, TX 76092).
•   If the expense is not a budgeted item then it is a disbursement request, which should be submitted to the VP of
    Disbursements who will then forward it for the proper approval. If the disbursement request is under $500, then the PTO
    Executive Board may approve. If it is over $500, it must have additional approval from the General PTO Membership at
    the monthly meeting.
•   Sales Tax
•   Purchases made for the benefit of the OUES PTO are exempt from sales tax.
•   Please provide vendors with a copy of our Texas Sales and Use Tax Permit or with our Permit number (1-75-2949157-
    7) to ensure that sales tax is not charged. Some vendors may already have our tax-exempt permit number on file and you
    will just need to give them the school’s name (Staples for example uses 3905706903 Staples number).
•   Please note: Because of the PTO’s tax-exempt status, the PTO cannot reimburse members for sales tax paid on
    items purchased on behalf of the PTO.
•   General
•   Copies of all forms may be found in the green Treasurer’s folder in the file in the Volunteer Work Room and are
    available on-line at the Old Union website.
•   Expense item from receipts (excluding sales tax). The Treasurer will make payment once a Check Request Form and
    attached invoices are received.
•   Please be thrifty whenever possible to ensure that we use PTO money wisely for our children.
•   THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your help in maintaining these financial controls. If you have any questions or
    comments, please feel free to contact Ellen Oberle, PTO Treasurer at, or 817-310-3395.

                 Parent Grade Level
•   Parent Grade Level Coordinators coordinate activities, parties, and/or special events the for the
    entire grade level.
•   Steps to Success:
•    Meet with the lead teacher and exchange contact information.
•    Meet with or at least introduce yourself via email to the HR Parents at your grade level.
    Consider setting up a group e-mail account for all HR Parents to assist with easy communication
    throughout the year.
•   Keep your HR Parents in the loop on communication that is policy-related or controversial. They
    are responsible for ensuring that the right processes and procedures are in place for all HR
    Parents. Give them input on what is working/not working.
•   Contact Lead Teacher 4-5 weeks before each party. The 3 main parties are Holiday (Dec.17),
    Valentines (Feb. 14) and end of year (June 2).
•   Discuss and agree upon specifics—food, craft, times, budget, etc.
•   Shop for items agreed upon and distribute items to each classroom.
•   Fill out a Request for Reimbursement Form (located in the front office). Turn in receipts to PTO
    Treasurer for reimbursement no later than 30 days after expenditure. OUES is a non-taxable
    entity so sales tax is not reimbursable.
•   Ask about other special events that will need coordination on a grade level basis (i.e. Book
    Character Day, etc).
•   Share all pertinent information with the HR Parents.
Homeroom Parents
        • Each class will have
          two HR parents
        • The duties can be
          divided as the two HR
          parents decide
        • Duties include: parties,
          gifts for teacher,
          volunteer calendar,
          and email

                       Gifts & Parties

•   Help the Parent Grade Level Coordinator organize the parent volunteers from
    the Party Sign Up Sheet. The parties are Holiday (Dec. 17), Valentines (Feb.
    14) and End of the Year (June 2).
•   Plan teacher recognition/gifts (3 times/year) for teacher’s Birthday, Holiday,
    and End of the Year. Some Homeroom Parents coordinate class gifts, while
    others leave this up to individual parents. The administration has set guidelines
    as follows:
•          A. Individual gifts— acceptable at any time
•          B. Group gifts—Many HR Parents put together a group “basket”
    comprised of individual gifts from classmates. This is acceptable as long as
    the gift is presented from all students in the class, even if you don’t get 100%
•          C. Monetary class gift requests are not acceptable through school. These
    need to be handled outside of the school. If you choose to use this option,
    make sure you communicate back to the parents as to how much was
    collected, what you will purchase and when it will be given to the teacher.
   Calendar & Communications
1. Meet the teacher to discuss plans for the year/ general classroom volunteer
       needs (how many times a week), etc.
2. Create classroom roster. Sheets were available at Meet the Teacher- pls pick up from
       your classroom teacher.
       If a parent chooses not to be included in the roster, simply exclude the child’s name
       make a note at the bottom of the roster: *some students are excluded from this list for
       privacy purposes
3. Meet with parents to create volunteer schedule.
       Create monthly volunteer calendar of volunteers and send weekly reminders via
4. Welcome new families who move in during the school year to the classroom by having
       them fill out the “Welcome To Old Union” form. (will be emailed to you) Make sure
       new family receives a class directory and provide an updated one to each family.
5. Pass on emails to classroom from PTO and administration

Claire and Kelly will send you a volunteer calendar template via email for you to fill in
        with General Volunteer and Math Master dates. Pls email to the parents in your
        classroom.    Go Green Dragons
