Since the days when the PTO
was known as the
Packersfield Association parents, teachers, and community members have
had a place to come together in support of our school.
Today's PTO often steps in
to provide 'extras' for our
students at Nelson Elementary School. These extras enrich the
educational experience for our students, ensure that the teachers have
enough supplies, the students go on field trips, the school adds to its
library, and a myriad of other benefits.
Since 2008, the Nelson School
PTO has held a live
auction in the spring. Monies raised by this auction have helped in the
past to provide a new slide for the playground, new swings, and an
outdoor structure as well!
Becoming a PTO member
is completely voluntary. Our PTO
works toward one goal: creating a strong, nurturing school environment
for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. We meet once a month
face-to-face in the Multi-Purpose Room of Nelson Elementary School, but
the bulk of our 'work' is done via email and internet.
To become a member
of the Nelson Elementary School PTO
you don't have to be a parent of a student. All you need is the desire
to help our children uncover and discover their full potential. Come
help us create the kind of school family where our teachers and our
students can do their best work!
