Welcome to the SCS PTO!
(Parent Teacher Organization)

Shelburne really does have a COMMUNITY school, and each of you is a member of that community.
Our PTO has several missions - the most important of which is to help build strong community connection between parents and the school. The PTO supports this through community building events such as the Holiday Fair, International Pot-luck Dinner, Teacher/Staff Appreciation breakfast and luncheons, parent education events, and publishing the school directory.

Did you know that the PTO gives out over $30,000 each year to our school?  
Your donations and participation in our fundraisers allows us to do this!

Here are some things we have funded over the last few years:
  • $15,000 towards the new school playground
  • ELMO's (overhead projectors) for every classroom
  • iPads, Kindles and Nooks that are accessible to students through the library
  • A Wii Fit System for the middle school Physical Education program
  • Hundreds of books serving K-8 in the library and in classrooms
  • Playground and recess equipment
  • Hands-on-Nature Science program for K-3 graders
  • Visiting Artist Program with the Flynn Theater for K-8 graders
  • Food Education Every Day (FEED) Program 
  • Instruments for the Music Department
  • Cameras for the Art Department
  • Theater-in-Action Bullying Prevention Workshop for Middle School Students



Come to Our Meetings:

Held the 2nd Tuesday of every month 6:00pm - 7:00pm. Learn what's going on in our school and community, ask questions, make a difference! We offer FREE PIZZA AND BABYSITTING at every meeting!
Full schedule of meetings at bottom of page.


The PTO runs several fundraisers throughout the year, but we realize these are not for everybody. You are welcome to make a tax deductible contribution to the SCS PTO at any time for any amount.   **Please note: There is a $50 per child/per class cap on class-specific donations. If you choose to restrict your donation to your child's class please make those checks out to the Shelburne Community School and send them directly to your child's teacher. Please do not send these donations to the PTO.

Even if you can't make it to the PTO meetings, we would love for you to get involved in any way you can! Help out at an event, donate a baked item for the teacher appreciation lunch or the Newberry Cup, lend a hand with the jog-a-thon. There are many different ways for you to get involved - we have something for everyone!

All volunteer opportunities will be posted throughout the year on the PTO E-Mail List Serve as needed.

Join our PTO E-mail List Serve - this is the place where all PTO announcements, information about fundraisers and volunteer opportunities will be posted throughout the year.

It is also a place where the entire SCS community can post announcements and help wanted. Think of this as Front Porch Forum but without the discussions. We hope that this becomes a valuable tool for parents and teachers to reach out to the school community.

If you aren't already on the list and would like to be added, please contact Courtney Tharpe
