FAMILY PTO DUES
Exciting News you can now pay your PTO Dues through Push Coin
It goes without saying that this year will look different in terms of PTO spending and fundraising. However, we are committed to supporting our Wild Rose students and staff in any way possible. Typically, PTO funds have been used to provide extra resources, equipment, field trips, technology, books, student scholarships, and annual grants for ALL of our teachers.
This year, we will work with Wild Rose staff and administrators to determine how to best allocate PTO funds.
We realize that many family’s financial circumstances may have changed. Although we rely on PTO family dues, we understand if your family cannot contribute this year. However, if you can contribute we would be most appreciative to receive your family dues of $25 ($25 per family. . . NOT per child).
Please go to Push Coin to pay your PTO dues. Thank you!
REGISTER FOR / UPDATE FOR MEMBERSHIP TOOLKIT!
The Wild Rose PTO uses Membership Toolkit to communicate with parents via email. It also gives families access to our online directory (so you can access contact information to arrange play dates, invitation for parties, etc).
It is imperative that EVERYONE (remote and in-person) either register for a new Membership Toolkit account OR update your family's existing account (correcting any contact info and "graduating" your student to his or her new grade/teacher).
In addition, once you have an account you can download the Membership Toolkit app in order to access Wild Rose family contact information on your mobile device!
