PTO Membership:
Join Today!

You are invited to join the Cornelia Elementary School PTO! The PTO works hard to enhance the learning experience of every student at Cornelia.
In addition to our fundraisers, the PTO also maintains an operating budget by collecting membership dues. Your family can become a member of the PTO
by paying these membership dues. As a member, you will receive PTO updates on events, be invited to all-member PTO meetings,
and help make a difference at our school.

Here are some examples of what your PTO accomplished during the last school year:
  • $1000 for Windmill Experiment Kits for 2nd Grade
  • $2500 for Xylophones and Mallets for the Music Program
  • $800 for 2nd grade literacy books
  • Reserved $5000 for playground resurfacing (see Finances/Budget for more information on this fundraising goal)

Previously, we had requested $20 per family as annual PTO dues and have had approximately 60% participation. This year we are trying something new!
We would love ALL FAMILIES to support Cornelia by becoming PTO members, so we are asking families to give what they can, be it $5, $25 or more.
Use the suggested amounts below to register and pay for your dues online or checks may be made out to Cornelia PTO and dropped off in the school office.
Please complete the attached form if you submit cash or check. 2017/18 PTO Membership Form

Thank you for your continued support of the Cornelia Elementary PTO and we look forward to getting to know you ALL this year!
