Summer 2017 PTO Meeting

There is no summer respite for PTO, folks. This Thursday (6/22) we are moving our PTO stuff from East Heights to the new digs. If you have a van or truck and can help, it would be much appreciated. Meet at 4:30pm at East Heights, and we can do a quick and easy move. Let us know!

Following that, we are also having our summer meeting at 6pm on Thursday (6/22) at The White Schoolhouse, 1510 N 3rd St, in North Lawrence (thank you Jennifer Roth). We will begin to map out our many PTO events for 2017-2018. Anyone and everyone who wishes to attend and be a bigger part of our exciting first year back at Pinckney is encouraged to attend. Childcare and pizza will be provided.

PTO Meeting, Monday, May 8th 5:30!

Hey, the last Pinckney PTO Meeting of the 2016-2017 school year is this evening at 5:30pm at East Heights in Room 28. This is the meeting where we establish the PTO Board for 2017-2018. If you’ve been interested in getting more involved in your neighborhood school, next year, with our arrival at the newly renovated school, is a prime opportunity to do so. We encourage anyone interested to attend tonight, especially parents/guardians of incoming Kindergarteners!
