Home, School, Community: A True Partnership

Red Bank Primary School PTO - Helping Connect Home and School, One Event @ A Time
The Red Bank Primary School PTO is comprised of a group of dedicated families and staff which host various events throughout the year. Proceeds help fund various trips and educational enrichment opportunities. Most importantly, these events help connect home and school as numerous families and staff attend and have a BLAST!
In October, PTO Harvest Festival welcomed nearly 1,000 students, parents and staff to the Primary School. Students came dressed in their costumes, had the chance to play different games, win prizes, dance and eat delicious foods. New this year was a special Haunted House which was a huge hit. Our Scholastic Book Fair was also open for some last minute shopping!
In November, PTO held their first McTeacher Night at the McDonald's in Shrewsbury. A record amount of families and staff descended upon McDonald's in a two hour period. Staff worked the counter, kiosks and mingled while our families ate, played and shared some quality time together. The event was so fun that we are doing it again in April 2019! McDonald's donates a portion of the proceeds earned to our PTO.
November was our first PTO Chuck E. Cheese night of the school year. Typically, PTO holds three special nights where families can come and enjoy food, games and fun! At the same time, Chuck E. Cheese donates a portion of the profits that evening to our PTO.
Our December PTO Winter Ball was the highlight of the year thus far. Santa and Mrs. Claus joined us on the stage for pictures, an AWESOME DJ kept the music pumping and energy level high in the gym, attendees had the chance to win fabulous holiday baskets filled with toys and home goods and staff and families served various foods, including our famous cotton candy, popcorn and Comida Latina!
