Welcome to Central Elementary PTO! If you have a child enrolled in Central Elementary, you are an official member of the Parent Teacher Organization. The main goal of our PTO is involvement. We do sponsor some fundraisers throughout the year, but our main goal is offering free, quality family events. Examples of past events are 4-H Enrichment Night, Night of the Arts, Family Fitness Night and the Blood Battle, which is a friendly competition between the Lebanon Community School Corporation PTO’s.
Our PTO has earned an honorable mention as a PTO Group of the Year through the PTO Today magazine for the last two years.
PTO meetings will be held on the first Thursday of each month beginning at 6:30 p.m. Meetings will be held in the teacher's lounge. Meetings are open to all Central families.
Box Tops 4 Education generates Thousands of Dollars in funds for schools across the nation? Last years top earning school received $21,823!
We can earn cash for Central Elementary simply by collecting Box Tops from products you buy every week! Central earns 10¢ for every box top we collect. This is an easy way to help PTO boost our buying power on behalf of the school and the teachers.
Please visit the Boxtops 4 Education website to see participating brands, shop online, print valuable coupons and learn more about the Boxtops 4 Education program. Sign up to be a school supporter for Central Elementary and we earn even more!
Each month, the neon pink order form will come home with your child. Fill out the form, and return it with a check to your child’s teacher. Your gift cards will come home with your child. If these dates fall on a weekend, they’ll move to the following Monday.
Use the gift cards just like cash to purchase groceries, gas, food, gifts and home products!
Participating stores include: Kroger, Marsh/LoBill, Speedway, Marathon, Kohl’s, JC Penney, Circuit City, Staples, Arby’s, Pizza Hut, CVS, Walgreen’s, Macy’s, Barnes & Noble, Bath & Body Works, Starbucks, Lowe’s and many more!
SCRIP cards also make great gifts, and you can use them when you travel.
We’re working to get more locally-owned businesses involved! If you work at a locally-owned business that would like to participate, please let us know and we’ll get things rolling.
Order a Kroger card through SCRIP and refill it at any Kroger service desk when needed. Every time you shop with it, Central PTO gets 5%!
Remember, this is a program that involves no selling. We plan to keep the SCRIP program in place for a long time, and make it our primary fund-raiser. Many schools across the U.S. have had great results with SCRIP, and Central is the first school in Lebanon to use it. Tell your family, and they’ll be happy to buy SCRIP as well.
If you don’t want your SCRIP order sent home with your child, contact an officer to make alternate arrangements.
