Committee Chairpersons Responsibilities

Fundraising Chairperson - 

  • Commitment - Entire School Year

  • SLRMS PTO operates on a perpetual fund system.  The fundraising committee needs to fundraise at least $18,000 year year to cover the expenses for the following school year.  These funds cover events, programs, supplies, and activities the school budget does not.  Every child at SLRMS is impacted by the monies fundraised.  

  • The Chairperson would oversee all fundraising and ensure volunteers are organized; including but not limited to the Calendar Fundraising Committee, Direct Cash Donation Committee, & Business Cash Donation Committee.  The Apparel Sales Committee does not fall under the Fundraising Chairperson.

Apparel Sales Committee Chairperson - 

  • Commitment - Entire School Year

  • SLRMS PTO's third grossing fundraiser is apparel sales.  In 2019/2020 this fundraiser brought in over $1,200!

  • Students, parents, staff, and community members all love to show their school spirit.  Approximately six times each school year the PTO will set up a table and sell SL spirt wear provided by Special Tees in Kingston.  

  • 20% of all apparel sales will go back to the PTO!  This is a lot of fun and allows you to interact with the community.  The Chairperson would organize and oversee all apparel sales.  

  • Although this is a fundraiser, this Chairperson does not report to the Fundraising Chairperson.

Scholarship & Educational Endowment Committee Chairperson - 

  • Commitment - Winter/Spring

  • Each year SLRMS PTO awards three scholarships to graduating seniors from SLRHS.  A $500 scholarship is awarded to one student from each of the three towns in the SLRSD.

  • The Chairperson would also need to recruit a faculty member from SLRMS to be a member of the committee.

  • The President of the PTO will present the recipients with their scholarship at SLRHS's annual Awards Program in May.

  • In addition to the scholarships, the PTO awards a $250 Endowment to an 8th grader for Meritorious Effort.  The chairperson would organize and oversee the committee as they review the current endowment application, submit the nomination form to the SLRMS Guidance Department, collect and review nomination forms , and select a recipient.

Staff Appreciation Committee Chairperson -

  • The Chairperson for this event would organize and oversee the event, including promotion, decorations, refreshments, ticket sales, and chaperones.
