How Can You Support the PTO?
- Come to meetings. They're fairly painless. Nobody throws chairs in anger at the budget, nor do we think we're an exclusive little group. We value input and/or participation from each family at Pinon.
- Volunteer. We have lots of projects we're working on, and we try to keep parents posted about what's going on when.
- Participate in events. When your family participates in the Pumpkin Patch, the Fun Run, the Arbor Day Silent Auction, or other events put on by the PTO, you're helping the PTO raise funds for our school.
- Give. We have several different ways you can monetarily give to support the PTO: Smith's Community Rewards, Amazon Smile, the Box Tops for Education program, the Labels for Education program (Campbell's Soup companies), and direct donation. See below for more information on each program.
Smith's Community Rewards - To enroll, sign in to your Smith's account (tied to your Fresh Values card) and click on your name to access your account summary. Scroll down to the bottom to see if you're enrolled in the Community Rewards program. You can only support one program, and our number is 83702.
Amazon Smile - Amazon will give 0.5% of eligible purchases (those items fulfilled by Amazon and not third party sellers) to the organization of your choice. This is easy money! When given the option to choose an organization, search for "Pinon Elementary New Mexico" and you'll see us.
Box Tops for Education - Clip these little guys and send them in with your student! One family uses a baggie held on the fridge with a magnet to collect their box tops. Click here for the full list of participating brands.
Direct Donation - The PTO is always open to monetary donations. Use the "Donate" button below to pay via PayPal.
