Each year Skokie School asks for volunteers for Room Parents. Room parent sign ups are for 5th and 6th grade parents only. 2 room parents are are needed per Advisory and minimal time commitment is involved. Room Parents assist classroom teachers as needed and serve as a liaison between teachers, the PTO, and classroom parents. Being a room parent is a great way to connect with other parents and your child’s teacher!more >>
The PTO has a long-standing tradition of offering a set of “old school” dance and social etiquette lessons to sixth graders, utilizing a trusted professional dance instructor in the Washburne gymnasium.
This is a low-key introduction to co-ed social functions for 6th graders, and they will have a variety of randomly assigned dance partners. Historically, kids enjoy this opportunity to:
- See themselves and their friends dressed up
- Learn types of ballroom dances that may come in handy someday (e.g. the waltz)
- Do something different and fun on a Friday evening!
- 2023: September 8th, 22nd, & 29th
- Location: Washburne Gym
- Time: 6:00-7:00pm, 9/29 class ends at 7:15pm
Fee is $50 (We are not able to issue refunds or prorate fee due to missed classes.)more >>
Get involved in the Skokie Washburne Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
The PTO supports the Skokie & Washburne school community by providing student enrichment and staff appreciation programs that build school spirit and a stronger sense of community, camaraderie and friendship for our entire student, parent, teacher & staff community.
We are comprised of numerous committees that offer parent volunteers various leadership opportunities throughout the year, along with an “inside view” into the Skokie & Washburne school experience, and the flexibility to run programs on your own time! It takes many parent volunteers to run the PTO and we are incredibly grateful for the time and effort of our dedicated Skokie & Washburne parent community.more >>
As a convenience to families, the PTO is pleased to offer Marla’s Lunch program for 5th and 6th grade students at Skokie School. Lunch is offered daily, featuring meal choices from local vendors. A percentage of each lunch purchased goes to the PTO and is in turn used to purchase equipment and technology, and to support enrichment opportunities for the students.
Please sign your child up for lunches now. The deadline to order lunches for the following week is every Wednesday at 12pm.
