With the school facing budget cuts, the PTO’s role at Shaffer becomes more and more vital with each financial hurdle the school faces.

The PTO has been able to support Shaffer in a number of ways including:

*funding Field Trips

*purchasing playground equipment and school supplies

*covering fees for sporting/academic events & uniforms

*recognizing positive behavior in students with SHAFFER ROCKS! program

*support Greenhouse renovation/curriculum

 

Being a part of the PTO is fun and rewarding on many levels. With your help, the PTO will be able to continue with its goals of providing enriching activities and a variety of educational experiences as well as needed playground equipment or classroom supplies.
