enhance the school experience for both students and staff by securing
funds for educational materials, programs and events; to assist with
communicating information to parents and guardians; to support the staff
through simple acts of gratitude.
Volunteer Opportunities: We
encourage every parent, guardian and teacher to take an active interest
in the AMS PTO. We strongly believe that students achieve greater
success when adults make the effort to get personally involved. While
we do reserve the right to solicit PTO members for assistance, we prefer
parents take the initiative in volunteering. Contact a PTO member if
you are interested in staffing the book fairs, special events, or if you
are interested in providing refreshments for special events or teacher
appreciation brunches…and remember, your ideas are always welcome at the
Scholastic Book Fairs (Fall/Winter/Spring):
Age appropriate books, posters and trinkets We encourage parents to
attend the book fairs. There is always a selection of reading material,
resource books and cook books geared toward the adult reader. It is
also a great opportunity to fill a teacher’s wish-list item, purchase a
book for the school library or get that book your student forgot to
bring money for.
Shelor Growing the Future (yearlong):
The Shelor Motor Mile gives away two cars each year. We sell raffle
tickets at $1 each for chances on winning the car and AMS keeps all the
raffle money to be used at our school. The first drawing is in October
and the second in April.
Auburn Eagles Spirit Wear will be on sale soon. Watch for a flier and order forms to come home in the next few weeks.
On-going “No Selling” Fundraisers
- The AMS PTO gets 10 cents for each BOXTOP$ collected. This is one of
the easiest fundraisers for your school and students are rewarded for
participating! The homeroom collecting the most during the
competitions, which are held a couple of times during the school year,
receives a special treat.
KROGER Community Rewards - Kroger has a new and
easier way for AMS parents to earn money for our school by just shopping
at Kroger. To enroll just go to www.kroger.com/communityrewards
and register your Kroger Plus card to AMS (our school number is 84900).
Every time you or anyone else in your household shops at Kroger with a
Kroger Plus Card we will earn rewards money for our school.
What Is Fundraising Money Used For?
budgets are tight and do not always allow for programs and supplies
that are deemed less critical. The AMS PTO aims to provide the tools
that help make AMS academically competitive. We also value the social
experience of middle school and support events geared to promoting a
positive learning and teaching environment.
