Luau and Auction on Saturday, April 5, 2014.
The event promises to be an evening full of great music, delicious food and lots of fun, with both live and silent auctions. This bi-annual event is the PTO's largest fundraiser of the year.
When you support the PTO you support the myriad curriculum enrichment (CE) programs that engage and enrich our children’s classroom experiences (see below).
Of course, there is more… Your donations also support our wonderful teachers and staff by providing classroom, library and playground improvements, teacher grants and staff appreciation events, help maintain the Outdoor Classroom, provide parenting lectures and underwrite events like Family Movie Night, the Back to School Picnic, Books from the Heart, BSO and MFA trips and the Grade Five celebration, as well as METCO events.
For questions regarding donations, volunteering or other fundraising ideas, please contact Jen Thomson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mahalo!
As the Dover PTO is a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization, contributions are 100% tax deductable (in excess of the fair market value of the goods or services received in return). Our tax I.D. number is 043-427-289.

Catch the Chickering Spirit!
Volunteer to support the school! There are many ways to be involved and we firmly believe we can find you an opportunity to suit your circumstances whether you want to be in the classroom, in the background, supporting from home during ‘off’ hours, digging a garden, cooking a meal, finding sponsors or planning a party. We have it all! And you can do as little or as much as you have the time to give. Our main drives for positions are in May and September, however, we have events throughout the year that we ask people to help out with – so watch this space! All volunteer opportunities during the year will be posted here! And if you have any questions about getting involved, please email email@example.com. We will be very happy to hear from you and will not pressure you to anything you are not sure you want to do!” Sign Up Here
