YOUR PTO, YOU're PTO, YOU ARE PTO

This year the PTO has two themes we are focusing on:

  1. PRIDE = COMMUNITY
    Your child(ren), you, your partner, your pets are all part of this wonderful Stratton Community. We not only share a school, we share neighborhoods, playgrounds and local businesses. Working together and looking out for one another is what makes a PRIDE strong.
    This year let’s be PRIDE STRONG!
     
  2. BE READY TO PIVOT!
    It’s not just a sports term, it’s a life lesson. It goes inline with the Robert Jordan quote, “The oak fought the wind and was broken, the willow bent when it must and survived.” As a PTO we are striving to bring back some of our beloved Stratton traditions.  Safety is always a top priority, as is inclusion, and when we must, we will pivot to ensure that our actions and events reflect these beliefs.

 

And remember, as soon as your child(ren) start attending Stratton, not only are you part of the PRIDE; you are also part of the PTO!

 


STRATTON KICKS OUT CANCER CHARITY AUCTION

 

This year's annual faculty vs. student kickball game is back with a philanthropic twist!

 

"About 10,470 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2022." (American Cancer Society) In addition to the children diagnosed with cancer, there are countless others whose lives are affected because a family member has developed some form of this horrible disease. 

 

Cancer affects us all. Stratton's beloved 2nd-grade teacher, Julie Barth, is currently fighting her own battle with cancer. We hold this year's kickball game to celebrate her tremendous spirit and in honor of her courageous fight!

 

The Stratton PTO is auctioning off 13 student spots and 2 parent coach spots and ALL proceeds will go to the Sanborn Foundation.

   

Auction begins on June 1st:

SNACK DONATIONS NEEDED!

 

 

Did you know that Stratton has a snack program? Research shows that students who are consistently hungry are more likely to have developmental and educational issues. Giving kids snacks allows them to concentrate on their learning -- not on their hunger. The snack program at Stratton, supported by Arlington EATS, makes sure that kids have access to nourishing snacks. Our goal is to provide snacks to any child who needs one so there is no stigma attached to being hungry. With this as our guiding principle, we know we will feed kids who simply forgot their snack, are growing, are extra hungry, or are from a family who is struggling to put food on the table. Once they have enough to eat, they can get back to the work of being a student. 

 

With that in mind, we ask that if you can afford snacks, that you provide them for your child every day--knowing that if you forget one day, we have you covered! And, if you have the ability, we ask that you help support our program by donating snacks so we can always have enough for all children. 

 

Please make a donation, please purchase snack items from the approved list below and drop them off at Ms. Lyons' desk in the lobby, or order from the approved Amazon Snack Wishlist.

 

Approved snack list:

  • Applesauce cups
  • Whole grain saltines
  • Graham crackers
  • Pretzels
  • Raisins/Craisins
  • Cheerios (must be Cheerios brand)
  • Ritz Crackers
  • Wheat Thins
  • Nutrigrain bars

If you have any questions about the snack program, you can contact Stacey Diehl at staceyrdiehl@yahoo.com or Kimberly Bradshaw at kimberly.bradshaw@gmail.com.
