What is the PTSO?

Overview

The Caleb Greenwood PTSO is a collaborative of parents, teachers and administrators at our school. The primary purpose of the PTSO is twofold: to provide a communication link between the parents and staff at the school, and to offer a vehicle for funding enrichment programs for our students. The time and energy devoted by PTSO members makes the difference between an average educational experience and a superior one.

Passive Fundraising Opportunities

Overview

Here are a handful of ways you can raise funds for our school while going about your daily activities. All that is required of you is to register with participating companies and then spend as you normally would. The companies give a percentage of your spending back to Caleb Greenwood. It’s that simple and it works!

Please participate. Encourage friends and family to participate. By the end of the year, each family will have contributed a few hundred dollars without giving up any extra time or money!

If you have any questions or know of a great program Caleb Greenwood might be missing out on, please email calebgreenwoodptso@gmail.com.
