October PTO Meeting
Did you miss this month's PTO Zoom meeting?
We welcome anyone from the Middleton community to join the Zoom conversation in real time - it’s a great place to get your questions answered, “meet" other parents, hear from our administration (and sometimes teachers pop in as special guest stars!). If after watching this replay you still have questions that need to be answered, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org or as always, on our private Facebook group.
Thank you to those that attended! Even if you were just observing with your camera and mic off, we appreciate you spending a part of your evening with us.
Topics covered this month included:
• How the hybrid model is going for staff and students
• Picture day(s) for hybrid and VLA students
• Upcoming Readathon information
• Student Directory
• Box Tops
• Upcoming restaurant nights
You can catch up on the latest here:
This year we are using Jotsen's for school photos and yearbooks. One huge difference with Jotsen's is earlier deadlines and the increasing price of the yearbook throughout the year. Order NOW through October 23rd to lock in the lowest rate of the year - $20! If you choose to add personalization to your book you can get 4 icons free (only through Oct 23rd.) So don't delay - order your book now! Visit jostensyearbooks.com to order. See more information on the attached flyer.
PTO Budget & Donations
Historically, the PTO has requested donations from families during its sale of student planners, spirit wear, and binders during school assessments. Unfortunately, parents (including the PTO board) are not allowed in the building, due to the new Covid-19 safety protocols.
The PTO budget and sponsored events will be modified as we figure out new ways to support our teachers and students. We know that the PTO will have expenses associated with technology, software licenses, supplies, winter gear, and other miscellaneous needs throughout the year. We ask that you consider donating via this secure site to ensure that we have the funds to support our Middleton community during this upcoming school year. To donate, please click here.
Cub Scout Pack 9601 is looking for boys or girls in grades Kindergarten through 5th Grade!
Even though some sports and activities have been sidelined, SCOUTING safely continues! Click here for more information.
Girl Scouts River Valleys is also looking for girls to join! Click here for more information.
Box Tops for Education will look a little different this fall. There will be no collection of clipped box tops, and all box tops will be submitted electronically via the app. They now also offer the option to email digital receipts from online shopping to have those counted. We appreciate all box tops that are submitted to help support our school and our amazing staff and teachers.
Reading Rivalry is an optional, PTO-sponsored event. Teams form a reading club, read a variety of books, and participate in a competition about those books. The intent is to foster a love of reading, introduce the students to books they may not otherwise choose, provide opportunities to work as a team, and to have fun! The competition will be reformatted this year, so stay tuned for more information!
For study guides and more information on the books, check out the Reading Rivalry page.
Meet the 2020-21 PTO Board
We have some new faces on the PTO board this year! We are looking forward to engaging with our community and serving our Middleton families and staff. Learn more about our board members here.
If you’d like to help the Middleton community, there are plenty of opportunities for parents to volunteer throughout the school year. You can give as little or as much of your time as you would like, and many items can be done from your own couch. Events that need chairs, co-chairs, or parent volunteers include:
Boo Bash Carnival Art Fair Science Fair Sports Outings
Website Walktathon School Play 5K (Spring) Book Fair
Picture Day Reading Rivalry Restaurant Nights
For full details, check out our volunteering page. Please reach out to us at if you’d like to learn more.
