Welcome to the Nicollet PTO Website!
Fall is here and school has started… Something very exciting is taking place right in our own community, a partnership is being developed with the school called Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO). This program will support all ages at Nicollet Public School Pre-K – 12th grade.
We are excited about involving the parents, teachers and the community into the school and starting the tradition of supporting events that bring school and families together.
To keep you informed we would like to invite you to attend the monthly meets we are scheduling which will be held on the 1st Monday of each monthly @ 6:30pm (Meeting time was approved to move at October Meeting). At the meetings we look to discuss recent issues, provide new information on upcoming events and fundraisers and bring everyone up to speed on the current programs and financials as well as hearing about your concerns, needs and goals. With this being our first year we will have a lot more informational meetings as we discuss what we need/want to accomplish and look forward to your input. We are looking to have childcare provided during the meetings to make it easier for families to join us.
We encourage frequent and open communication. We have developed a Facebook page and have a link out on the schools website ( http://www.isd507.k12.mn.us/ ) These communication avenues will allow us to inform you of upcoming events, meetings/notes, agendas as well as a route for others to add comments and suggestions. By using these options we are trying to keep things “green” to conserve on paper, ink, time and energy!
PTO has two main goals: One being to bring the community and school together and our second goal is to start to fund NPS education programs/activities and extracurricular programs to make it the best place for the students, staff and community.
We all know that in order for a PTO to survive we need volunteers. We are going to be promoting the 2 Hour Power program with PTO. We’d love your 2 Hours, and –Really! We promise! – There’s no obligation beyond helping out in this small, but important way. If you’d like to do more – great, but we know that’s not a fit for everyone. Be watching for more information on 2 Hour Power volunteering opportunities.
Be sure to spread the word as we know these efforts will go a further with the help from parents and community members as well. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us at NicolletPTO@gmail.com or look us up on Facebook: Nicollet Public School PTO.
