Welcome to the Medway Elementary Parent Teacher Organization website! 

Here you have access to all sorts of information about PTO sponsored programs. The Medway Elementary PTO is made up of all volunteers and all funding for PTO sponsored programs comes from fundraisers held throughout the year. 

Thank You for a Successful Year
Thanks to the incredible support of our elementary school community, this year MEPTO has raised $20,000 for our schools--in addition to the $15,000 given to Memorial for books, $10,000 given to McGovern for books and the $35,000 set aside for the Community Farm program! Of this, $5,000 will be earmarked for special request grants from teachers and staff, $9,000 will go to Memorial School, and $6,000 will go to McGovern School.

We are thrilled that MEPTO is able to give back to our schools--and our students--in such a meaningful way, and we are so grateful to all our volunteers and supporters for making that possible.

We hope you take some time to check out all the great things we have to offer. If after viewing the information provided on this site you still have questions or need more information, please feel free to contact the committee chair listed along with each program or any of the board members.

Fall Harvest Social & Silent Auction: THANK YOU
We are so excited to report we raised $10,860 at this year's Fall Harvest Social & Silent Auction on Nov. 7, making it one of our most successful fundraisers ever! WOW! And not only that, but thanks to the generosity of those in attendance, we also raised $1,000 for the Maddie Lamson Scholarship Fund through bids on the Medway Lacrosse registration auction item and other donations. 

We are so humbled by this incredible show of support. Our heartfelt thanks to our planning team (Meredith Luzietti, Lynn Roberts, Allison Curley, Tiffany Duguay, Marji Ruggeri, Ketal Patel, Jackie Cautilli, Gayatri Aryan, Denise Palmieri, Nicole McMahon, Kathleen Shipos and Amy Arnpriester), our hardworking volunteers, and everyone who joined us and made the night such a success. And special thanks to all our sponsors for their generous donations; we couldn't have done it without you.
