The Mason-Rice PTO Communications pillar aims to foster relationships within the school community through weekly newsletters, the Mason-Rice PTO website, and a social media presence. Click here to jump to newsletter submission form.
The role of the Mason-Rice PTO has been and always will be to foster and support the parent-to-school relationship. This year, we see this mission as amplified. While–like everyone–we optimistically look forward to a day when we and are all together again, safely, and Covid-19 is a memory, we recognize that we won’t likely be one cohesive unit any time soon. But we are confident that the PTO can be the unifying force that keeps our community connected, regardless of whether your family has chosen the hybrid option, DLA, or to unenroll for the year.
For that reason, this year more than ever before, the work of the Communications Team is a priority focus for the PTO. The team has been working so hard to improve all of the PTO’s communication channels–from this website to the weekly newsletter–and is even building new functions like a social media presence (see links below to join/follow us)!
Parents, we urge you to take these steps to stay up-to-date with the PTO:
1: Read our weekly newsletter sent through our private directory, Membership Toolkit
2: Join our private Facebook group
3: Follow us on Instagram
Parents, do you have an active account in our online directory? Our PTO communicates via our private online directory, Membership Toolkit. To receive communications, you must have an active and updated account in the directory. So whether you’re a new or returning family, please create or confirm your contact information in Membership Toolkit as soon as possible so we can keep you up-to-date on the many happenings we are planning. See below for detail instructions. You can access our directory here.
If you have an active account in Membership Toolkit and have not received recent correspondence, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so we can troubleshoot the issue.
