PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION

The Thomson Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a registered non-profit organization that brings parents, teachers, and students together for a common goal: creating an enriching educational experience. By joining forces, we can build a vibrant community and provide much-needed resources for our dedicated teachers.


Who Is a Member?

Everyone. There are no dues. All parents and staff are members.


Why Be Involved with the PTO?

  • Foster Strong Relationships: Connect with other parents and teachers who share a passion for education. Collaborate and work together to enhance our children's learning environment.

  • Support Teachers: Donate or fundraise to build a general fund that can be used to provide essential supplies, materials, and resources for our teachers to deliver the best education possible.


How Can I Help?

  • Donate money for our general fund—this is the primary fund used by the PTO and school administration for:

★ Events that celebrate staff (including teachers and administrators);
★ Field trips;
★ Improvements to community spaces; and
★ Classroom supplies and equipment.

  • Donate to specific funding drives--we will have a funding request for the Annual Staff Appreciation Week in May, and might have other specific funding requests for specific capital improvements.

DONATIONS & FUNDRAISING

Individual Donations

We use the Zeffy–zero cost application specifically designed for nonprofits.

Corporate Matching

The PTO is a recognized 501C3 non-profit on the Benevity platform, used to match donations by many corporations. If your employer uses a different platform please request to add the Thomson PTO using EIN 93-1476188 and DCThomsonPTO@gmail.com.
