Berry PTO

The Janet Berry Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) helps Janet Berry Elementary School parents, teachers, and staff come together to support the educational experience of our children and build the community of our school. 

The Berry PTO is a non-profit organization that is 100% volunteer-driven.  Fundraised dollars are spent on Berry PTO activities, events, and school/classroom projects.  Whether you are new to Janet Berry or have been around for a while, we invite you to get involved in the PTO!

PTO Activities

Our annual events generally fall into the categories below.  Events can rotate each year as new ideas are implemented and older events are phased out.  A new calendar is published at the start of each school year.

Community/Family Events

Each year volunteers plan fun activities for Berry students and families. Past event calendars have included Fun Runs, Family Game Nights, Field Days, Roller Skating Nights, Book Fairs, and 6th Grade Farewells. 

Classroom & School Funding

The Berry PTO funds special requests made by our staff members utilizing our Funding Request Process.  These dollars are spent on items that do not fall within the school’s budget or cannot be funded by grants.  Past requests have included items for specific classrooms, items for school clubs, additional playground equipment, and enrichment projects for all students. 

Staff Appreciation

Volunteers plan activities throughout the year to show the staff our appreciation for a job well done!  Events typically include meals/snacks on Parent/Teacher Conference evenings, a holiday luncheon, and celebrations throughout Staff Appreciation Week. 

Fundraising

Fundraising is not a primary goal of the PTO, however, we do need to raise funds in order to provide programs and events for our Berry community.  We host one large fundraiser each year.  In addition, we participate in Dine-Out Nights with local restaurants and utilize shopping apps, like Box Tops, to raise money for our programs.
