PTO

Welcome to the J.W. Killam Elementary School PTO

The Killam Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is comprised of teachers, parents and caregivers invested in creating a safe, supportive and positive environment for Killam students through community events, in-school enrichment activities, field trips and fund raising opportunities that support Killam’s T.R.R.F.C.C. (Trustworthy, Respectful, Responsible, Fair, and Caring Citizens) values.

PTO Fundraising

PTO Dues:
As things are changing and we are still unsure what this year will look like, the PTO has postponed our usual dues push until we have more information from the district, however for those of you who are interested in getting a jump on dues, there are three ways to pay!

  1. Venmo @PTO with Dues as the subject
  2. Email jwkpresidents@gmail.com to drop off a check! 
  3. Pay through our gear site https://jwkillampto.square.site/?fbclid=IwAR2dZBkG_rtAU5_EdkuwdDhEV5HjZJ11kCvB53AoHIZblSsWvWWP7cbeAYw  


DUES IN 2020-2021: This year due to the reduction of enrichment activities the PTO can provide for students, we are asking for a smaller contribution in dues. 

For 2020-2021, we anticipate the PTO will pay roughly $30 per child to provide software and both remote and in-person learning materials. This year, we suggest that families contribute $30 per child or $75 per household, but as always we only ask families to contribute what they are able. Any amount helps.

 

Killam Koalas Spirit Gear: 
Looking for Koala Gear. Look no further: https://jwkillampto.square.site/?fbclid=IwAR2dZBkG_rtAU5_EdkuwdDhEV5HjZJ11kCvB53AoHIZblSsWvWWP7cbeAYw

 

Amazon Smile:
This is an easy source of money for the school that is under-utilized.  Go to https://smile.amazon.com/ and select “J W Killam Parent Teacher Organization” as your charity. Copy and paste the text since it must be an exact match.

 

Box Tops:
They are on many products you already buy and earn thousands of dollars each year for the school.  Clip and put in a plastic baggie in your child's home-school folder.

Families: Update A to Z Connect Directory

We are asking families to update the PTO friendship directory, A to Z Connect, with for each child.  This is a great chance to correct any errors.  The more families update, the more easily you connect with your child's classmates before the new year.
