PTO Annual Fund Drive

Every year the Newton Middle School PTO holds ONE primary fundraiser…the PTO Annual Fund Drive, where 100% of donations are directly deposited into the PTO account. This means there are no fees withheld by third parties, no students serving as sales force on their neighborhood streets during a pandemic, etc.
This year our goal is to raise $30,000. We are recommending a donation of $150 per family which equates to than less than a dollar-a-day that our students are learning, whether in the classrooms, or virtually at home. But, please know that EVERY GIFT COUNTS.

What does PTO do with the money you donate?

  • Funding of capital improvements such as enhancements for the Rock Wall in the new building, refinishing of the gymnasium floor, refurbishing of lockers, new AV/sound equipment, and the fitness center for the new building
  • Funding of classroom enhancements like the Reading Counts program, heart monitors for the PE program, and drones for Knight Time enrichment
  • Funding of teacher grants, both in the building for Newton staff and at the LPS district level
  • Supporting student families that have been confidentially identified by the counseling staff as needing a hand up during the holidays with gift cards for groceries and presents, and in non-pandemic years, the Backpack Program
  • Funding the FUN so there’s Halloween candy for trick-or-treating, end of year celebrations, shirts for students, car magnets for families and more.
  • Funding monthly staff appreciation.

If you are able, please donate. We’re running the Annual Fund Drive from now through the end of December.
