Gifts to School 2015-2016

Each year PTO works tirelessly and in partnership with the community to raise money to support Fair Grove Schools.  This year the Executive Committee gathered input from teachers, administrators and PTO members to determine the best use for the $15,000 raised.  The following gifts will help teachers provide a high quality education to our students while minimizing their out of pocket expenses in their classrooms.  

 * Kindergarten through fourth grade, including Pre-K and ECSE, along with the elementary library and intervention classrooms each have $1500 to spend on equipment, supplies, etc as needed.  
*  New Cafeteria Table
* Recess Equipment for 5th Grade
* Scholastic Readers for Middle School 
* Educational/ Cultural Field trips for Elementary
* Equipment and Supplies for Elementary Office
