Monument Academy PTO

Welcome to the Monument Academy PTO, a strong and growing support organization in our wonderful school! The PTO has worked in concert with the administration, teachers and staff to enhance every aspect of the school in recent years. The Green 4 Green Campaign and live auction event in 2016 are a hallmark of our work. Hardworking PTO volunteers and overwhelming community support raised over $70,000 in funds for the Lynx Field. The Board of Directors matched the PTO funds and the field was installed during the summer of 2016, ready for our students at the start of the 2016-2017 school year!

After that success, PTO has settled on one fundraising event per semester, with goals set for specific school needs. Our goal in the fall 2016 Fun Run was $10,000 to purchase new computers for the library. The Fun Run was a huge success and raised over $19,000! We were able to give additional grants, including for the new archery program, an ice machine (requested by teachers and also needed for luncheons and Core Knowledge days), equipment for fine arts, a training course for SPED staff, and new toys for the preschool. Our Read-a-Thon in the spring of 2017 also had a goal of $10,000 to purchase new books and materials for classroom libraries. The Read-a-Thon raised nearly $8,000, a great success for a very busy spring!

The PTO also supports teachers through our Room Mom program, Teacher Appreciation Week, and staff luncheons. We support families and students through our Friday Snack program, School Supply kits, Summer Workbooks, Spirit Wear Store, and Used Uniform Swaps.

We invite you to look over our calendar of events, volunteer opportunities and programs. We are always looking for new energy, ideas and help from our wonderful parents.

Thank you for helping make Monument Academy a school of excellence. And thank you for your interest in the Monument Academy PTO. Please contact me or any other PTO members with questions or support. You can also find us on the Monument Academy PTO page on Facebook.

About Volunteering

Monument Academy requests our parents volunteer a total of 16 hours per family per semester (32 hours per school year). Your service to the PTO counts! Any parent who volunteers at school must sign in and out at the MA front office. This automatically logs volunteer hours performed at school. If you do volunteer work outside of school (shopping, making something for an event, helping with teacher projects, etc.), keep track of your hours and e-mail them to the PTO to have them recorded. MA uses the volunteer hours to apply for grants, as well as sharing this information with the MA bondholders and Board of Trustees.
