Our PTO thrives on the commitment of so many Mason-Rice families who support us with their time and financial resources. Over half of families volunteer their time, give to our Annual Fund, and/or support us through purchases from our partner programs.
Every year the PTO’s Annual Fund helps support supplies and programs for Mason-Rice Elementary School that are not covered by the Newton Public Schools’ budget. Though our expenses are different this year, we still need your support. This year, the PTO’s funds will be directed to:
- Direct Teacher Support: including reimbursements for classroom supplies, curriculum support, and appreciation events for all teachers of M-R students, both hybrid and DLA.
- Principal Discretionary Fund: Used to anonymously support Mason-Rice families who are experiencing hardship.*
- Funding for Creative Arts & Science: curriculum enrichment programs that would not otherwise be provided by the district for students.
EVERY DONATION MAKES A DIFFERENCE. If you would like to help support/sponsor the cost of our programs, please make a donation to the Mason-Rice PTO by using Paypal securely by clicking here the link to the right. You can read more about our fund details here.
**Is your family experiencing hardship? Please reach out to Principal Bultema; he is able to leverage the Principal Discretionary Fund to support you and your family. Information about which families benefit from this fund is known by Mr. Bultema exclusively.**
Funds raised as of January 12, 2021.
