Latest News …

  • 2014-2015 Year in Review ~ PTO Money at work

    As this school year comes to an end, PTO would like to share how more than $50,000.00 in funds raised were returned directly back to Stone Lake Elementary School and its students.

    • $2,800.00 for English Language Arts curriculum for all grade levels.
    • $1,777.98 for new sound system.
    • $399.00 for a new pressure washer for upcoming school maintenance and repair projects.
    • $1709.20 for a new ceiling mounted projector for the Computer Lab.
    • $1,515.33 for new SPARK PE equipment.
    • $4,280.00 for 6th grade field trip busses.
    • $17,000.00 for classroom supplies, classroom equipment, library improvements and awards.
    • $20,000.00 approved for a new shade structure for the kindergarten area.

    Additionally, to honor the memory of Mrs. JoEllen Shanks, PTO has purchased a memorial bench to be placed on campus in the Beth Cass Courtyard.  Mrs. Shanks was a founding teacher of Stone Lake Elementary, a leader, and an extraordinary educator.  The bench will ensure that her legacy continues and will serve as a fond reminder for those who were lucky enough to have been her student and for the many colleagues with whom she shared so much of her time at Stone Lake.

    Finally, we are continually looking into new projects and programs on which to allocate PTO funds for the benefit of students and for the improvement of the school.  We greatly value parent, student and staff input into these upcoming plans and invite you to attend PTO General Meetings held at 6 PM on the 2nd Tuesday of the month starting on Aug. 11,  2015.   These meetings are also a wonderful opportunity to share a forum with our school’s Administrators and leaders.  For additional questions or comments email PTO President Lisa Mehl at president@stonelakepto.org
