Yarmouth PTO Grades K-8


Simply Supporting 
 
your Schools:

The Yarmouth PTO is a 501 (c) 3 with a current $31,300 budget and 93% of the revenue goes directly back to the schools. The PTO is proud to sponsor and support many of the day-to-day enrichments that our students and teachers cherish. 
We have successfully achieved 32% of our fundraising goal. 
We need Yarmouth families to continue their support of this budget and your student’s classroom traditions. Please consider the PTO with your tax-deductible donation this year. Simply write ”direct donation” in the memo and send your check to:

Understanding the PTO:

Simply stated the PTO supports many of the day-to-day enrichments our students enjoy.  An average of $2500 goes directly to each grade, enriching the curriculum of our students. 
Every family and teacher are part of the PTO.  You do not need to join to support.  Families can support the PTO with donations of time, money, or even a pie at Thanksgiving.  One of the goals of the PTO is to continue to foster a culture of friendship and openness at our schools.  We welcome you to be involved, have a voice, and join the fun. 

Mission Statement:
The Yarmouth PTO K-8 Non-For-Profit organization supports and enhances the educational and recreational experiences of K-8 students.  The Yarmouth PTO is an organization  of parents, teachers, and administration working together to provide programs and enrichment for the students.  Enrichment is funded through fundraising and donations in addition to community-based activities.
