Stanwood Elementary PTO
Stanwood Elementary PTO would like to welcome all families!
Who are we?
Stanwood PTO Board:
|Alexis Halligan:||Vice President|
|Deanna Brown:||Parent Liaison|
"PTO" stands for "Parent Teacher Organization" The Stanwood Elementary PTO Board consists of 5 moms who have 12 kids (aged 3-14) between them. Some of us have jobs outside the home (full time & half time) and some are "home executives". Many of our kids are in afterschool sports. We are volunteers at the end of the day and live by the motto: "Many hands make light work." The more people who get involved, the easier it is for us to provide the school with activities for the students at SES.
What do we do?
The PTO's primary mission is to support the school in any way it can. We also empower parents to participate in their child's education and be connected to the school. We completely or partially fund many programs including school assemblies, field trips, bingo and movie nights, harvest hootenany, 5th grade outdoor education camp, honor choir, All-State Choir, field day, and so much more!
For the 2018-2019 school year, through fund-raisers and donations, we have been able fund upgrades to the covered play area and purchase Spirit Wear for every student and staff member at SES. We also purchased tether-balls, hoola hoops, 2 ball carts, and a giant Connect-4 game for recess this summer. In addition, we will purchase science kits and be able to pay more towards field trips this year - thereby lessening financial burden on families.
How can you help?
All of our children have benefitted from these programs. Your help is appreciated and needed! The more people who get involved, the easier it is for us to provide the school with fun activities for the students at SES. We encourage you to help out with as much as you can throughout the year - from helping with event set-up or take-down, to helping with Popcorn. It doesn't matter if you have a little time or a lot, we need YOU to be successful! This year is going to be great! Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you!
Most of our communication is sent via "kid-mail", email list, or our Facebook page.

School Health Guidelines
When should my student stay home from school….?
- If your student has been ill during the night, (upset stomach, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) the following day he/she should be kept home.
- The student should not be sent to school to see if he/she is well enough to be there.
- If your student has a cold, he/she should be kept home until mucous drainage and coughing have stopped.
- If your student complains of not feeling well in the morning, his/her temperature should be taken. When your student has a temperature of 100.5 degrees or greater, he/she should be kept home until the temperature has been normal for 24 hours.
- If your student has thick mucus or pus drainage from the eye or pink eye he/she should be kept home.
- If your student has a body rash, especially with fever or itching, he/she should be kept home.
If your student has been absent due to a communicable disease, please indicate the disease on the written excuse when he/she returns to school.
Please have an emergency telephone number on file at the school for the school to use in case of injury or illness when the parent cannot be reached through normal channels.
Volunteers must be updated with training yearly. Please join us at one of our trainings if you would like to volunteer in the school, go on field trips, or just help out on special days! Please check for dates in the "Important Dates" at the top of the SES homepage.
