The funds that were raised at last year’s Parade of Lights Contest to purchase an outdoor water fountain for the Palisade Attendance Center’s play ground area.
The PTO has funded various elementary field trips including the most recent visit to Cox’s Ponds where elementary students had an entire day filled with different lessons utilizing the outdoors and pumpkins.
The group also helps sponsor any fifth or sixth grade field trips.
The PTO also gives each K-6 teacher a $50 stipend which funds each teacher’s individual good behavior treats. Some teachers award “money.” Kindergarten teacher Dawn Doetker gives Doetker Dollars, third grade teacher Stephanie Malcolm has doubloons.
PTO’s president is Sam Sutherland, vice president Sarah Vrbas, secretary Dawn Doetker and treasurer Jolene Muths.
