• Book Fair
    Dear Parents (and Grandparents),

    The PTO is looking for volunteers to help with the upcoming Book Fair.

    We are seeking volunteers to help students browse and purchase books on

    -Friday, October 21st – 11:30-3:00

    -Monday, October 24th – 11:30-5:00

    -Tuesday, October 25th – 9:00-10:45 & 11:30-3:00

    -Wednesday, October 26th – 11:30-3:00

    -Thursday, October 27th – 9:00-10:45 & 11:30-3:00

    -Friday, October 28th – 11:30-3:00

    -Monday, October 31st – 11:30-5:00

    We are also extending our hours on Monday, October 24th & 31st so that families & community members can browse and shop after school and during the Halloween parade & festivities.

    The Book Fair will be set-up in the Library and students will come down with their entire class - so the more volunteers we have to help, the smoother it will go.

    If you’d be willing to help out with the Book Fair, please contact Sherry Brinks at sherrybrinks@gmail.com (825-2021/884-9566)

    Thanks for supporting your PTO!

About us

The McBain PTO has been in existence for several decades, and has evolved over time to become a primary financial supporter of many events and organizations within the McBain Rural Agricultural School system. The PTO also promotes school spirit and pride in our school!

Do you know who you are supporting when you help support the McBain PTO? Here are just some of the groups/events receiving sponsorship from the PTO: Senior Prom and After-Prom Activities, Homecoming, Sophomore Carnival, National Honor Society, Project H.E.R.O., field trips, senior scholarships, arts & sciences scholarships, playground updates, and Reading Month activities. The PTO has also brought lots of exciting and educational assemblies and events to the school over the years.

Without the support of many parents, students, school staff, friends, neighbors, and community members every year, the PTO would not exist. Thanks to everyone who supports our efforts!

If you would like to be on our list of volunteers, please contact your child's teacher, or call the school at (231) 825-2021. By adding your name to the list, you are not committing to any certain number of hours or dates...just that you would be willing to be contacted for events that may come up where we need some extra help. You can decide at that time whether or not it works with your schedule. It could be helping with a popcorn day, the Book Fair, the raffle table at the Holiday Craft Market, helping during Parent-Teacher Conferences, etc. If everyone gave just 1 hour a month, we could accomplish such great things! Please seriously consider this, as a way to get involved in the lives of your children and their school.
