Greetings PTO Friends!
We are looking forward to seeing you at the November PTO meeting tomorrow night! It’s going to be a lively meeting and the agenda includes:

Scholastic Book Fair which takes place November 14 – 18. The kids love to come in and pick out their books and it’s a fun event if you haven’t volunteered before and are looking to start simple. You can sign up here

CommUnity Dinner Dance on Friday February 24 This is a new event the PTO is putting on as part of the Parker Woods Black History Month celebration. We’d love to hear your recommendations for favorite DJ’s and Soul Food restaurants that cater. Want to be on the committee and help with planning or decorating? Come to the meeting or email Kate! (

We will also be planning for the Art Tile Mural Fundraiser in January and the Everything But The House Auction in March both of which will raise money for Specials and other programming.

Another agenda item will be Muffins with Mom and Donuts with Dad. Hopefully you were able to attend one or both of those events recently! The discussion will be about how to make the names of those events reflect the diversity of family structures at Parker Woods Montessori. The PTO will be discussing a recommendation to change the event names to Muffins with Mom, Family and Friends and Donuts with Dad, Family and Friends
We welcome your thoughts on this issue.

The PTO has been busy this year with the Open House and School Resource Fair, the Walk-a-thon and Fall Festival and Halloween Movie Night. The Room Parent system is up and running and we’ve also organized a Mascot Election for the students – GO PANTHERS!!

None of these events would be possible without your help.
Thanks and see you tomorrow!!
