Welcome to Nabnasset Elementary PTO!

Welcome to the Nabnasset Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) web site. In exploring the site, you will discover all the wonderful events, charitable endeavors, and gestures of teacher/staff appreciation happening at our special school. There is no doubt that parent participation continues to play an integral role in the excellence and community spirit at our Nabnasset Elementary School. We could not do any of this without your support. Thank you for that.

If you are curious about the programs we bring to your child’s class, read about them here.

Race for Education Raises Nearly $12,000

Thank you to everyone who supported and participated in the Race for Education, which will officially wrap up at the end of January. So far, we have raised almost $12,000 for the school year.

This fundraiser has allowed us to have our planned Arts and Enrichment programs as well as kick off a mini-grant program at Nab to further enhance our students’ classroom experience. In December, Wingmasters came to visit the first and pre-first classes and Rhythm Kids entertained the kindergartners. The second graders got to experience the Museum of Science – Engineering Bridges program.

New Mini Grant Program

New for the 2019 year, the Nab PTO is offering Mini Grants for teachers, which gives them the opportunity to request funds for materials or programs not normally budgeted for, but that would enrich the classroom experience. The first round of applications was submitted in early January. We are pleased to announce we have awarded the following grants for a total of just over $800.

Mrs. Richard – Binding machine and supplies
Mrs. Osborn – ISTE Digital Citizenship Online Course
Mrs. Maguire – Blocks & Blueprints Learning Center – Extra Wooden Blocks
Mrs. Srebnick – Headphones, CD players, cushion, Hoberman sphere
Mrs. Grady – Two, Eight-Drawer Rolling Chests

Congratulations to these teachers! We look forward to considering more applications for the next round in March.

 

Send a Thank You to Your Race for Education Donors

 

Thank you so much to everyone who participated and donated to the Race for Education this year. We are so grateful for your effort and for the support of your friends, neighbors and family who sponsored your child. Because of your dedication, we have raised more than $12,000 for Nabnasset School. These donations allow us to fund all of our Arts and Enrichment programs at each grade level.

Now that we have tallied the results, please join us in extending a thank you to your sponsors. We have created a few postcard templates (best if printed front/back on cardstock) and a sample email for your use.

You know your sponsors best. So please, communicate your appreciation in the way you think is most appropriate. Some families like to have their children color a special picture or create a personalized card. Grandparents might prefer their “thank you” delivered with a hug!
