Thank you for joining the PTO’s efforts to show our collective appreciation of all Skokie/Washburne employees, as well as to support the funding of teacher wish-list technology and materials that are not funded by the district. We ask that you contribute to the:
Teacher Annual Holiday Gift Fund
In appreciation for the “above and beyond” that our Skokie/Washburne teachers and staff members do to benefit the students, the PTO gives each employee a gift card during the holiday season. The PTO encourages families to forego personal holiday gifts or class funded gifts, and instead contribute to the Annual Holiday Gift Fund. Your $45 per child contribution will be disbursed to ALL employees in each building (teachers, assistant teachers, specials teachers, special education teachers, aides, administrators, custodians, crossing guards), in the form of a holiday gift card. Contributions to this Gift Fund will ensure that the entire Skokie/Washburne staff feels thanked for contributing to a successful school year, during challenging times.
Skokie/Washburne Annual PTO Donation
The Annual PTO Donation asks every family to contribute funds to directly benefit our children’s school experience, through the purchase of materials, technology and unique items the Skokie/Washburne teachers and staff are wishing for, to aid them in their jobs. These are “extra” things the district cannot fund, but are very beneficial to the classrooms and school. In past years, the Skokie/Washburne PTO successfully funded new furniture for the Washburne Cafeteria, a new climbing wall for Skokie School, new outdoor furniture, Makers Space materials, and stand-up desks, to name a few. We hope to continue to support the schools, above and beyond what is funded by the district. Your PTO donation can improve technology integration inside the classrooms, provide hands-on learning materials, fund furniture for alternative learning spaces, and offer experiential learning opportunities. To continue supporting our school in this way, we recommend a $30 per child donation. Thank you!
Please note: Infosnap school registration DID NOT have a PTO donation option, so this is the first time you are receiving this financial appeal.
