Hello Sherman Families, 

Welcome back! If this is your first year with us, welcome – we're so excited to have you! The Sherman Parent Teacher Organization (SPTO) is a parent-led, nonprofit organization. Our vision this year goes beyond just fundraising. We want to go back to basics, get families more involved and strengthen our school community as a whole. We value your input as parents and want to share the opportunity to have a bigger voice and more hands-on experiences within our school. For this reason, we are waiving the membership dues to encourage all families - new and old - to join the SPTO this year.

The SPTO does hold numerous fundraisers throughout the year (be on the lookout for our Mums & Pumpkins and Pizza in the Park fundraisers!). We also host a variety of free events that give families a chance to come together, mingle with other parents, and get to know their children’s peers. We are always looking for fresh ideas or a good excuse to get together! Whether it's helping to cut the cost of field trips, enhancing classrooms, or beautifying our school yard - every event held directly benefits our children. 

On the second Wednesday of each month, we hold our monthly meeting in the cafeteria at 8:45am. In these meetings we go over events - new and old, updates from our Administration as well as Board of Education, and teacher requests for classroom needs or field trips. We invite everyone to join us in these meetings as it is a great way to not only get more involved in the SPTO’s upcoming events, but also to speak directly with the administration and members of our board of education. These meetings are where our voting happens – this gives members of the SPTO a chance to give their input on how funds are spent. We understand that not everyone can make these meetings, so you can always check the website for our minutes to see what you may have missed! Our first meeting of the year will be on Wednesday September 14th.

That’s the SPTO in a nutshell. We are a group of parents that are always looking to grow our village and make our children’s school years as memorable as possible. We would love for you to join us! If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at [email protected]

We look forward to meeting you and getting to know your family!
