Palmyra Elementary PTO

Who are we and what do we do?

The Palmyra Elementary Parent Teacher Organization is an active organization composed of parents, legal guardians, and faculty from the four elementary schools (Forge Road, Lingle Avenue, Northside and Pine Street) in Palmyra, Pennsylvania. We work hard to be able to provide supplies, materials, and activities for students and faculty above and beyond those provided by the school district.

Through its various fundraising activities, the PTO is able to provide support to the teachers and students. In the past we have funded activities such as:

  •     National Archery in the Schools Program for all elementary schools
  •     funding for assemblies
  •     providing new maps and globes at Forge and Northside for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classrooms
  •     contributing to the reading programs
  •     providing meals and desserts for faculty during parent/teacher conferences
  •     funding the kindergarten playground fence at Northside
  •     purchasing new musical instruments for each of the elementary music programs
  •     supporting the summer book exchange program and supplying books for all grade levels
  •     funding classroom supplies (example:  iPads)
  •     awarding teacher grants to qualified teacher requests either on an individual or group basis to benefit the classrooms
  •     funding additional indoor recess activities
  •     purchasing back-to-school folders and planners for all students
  •     providing yearbooks for every 5th grade student
  •     providing kindergarten appreciation gifts - given to every kindergarten student to welcome them to Palmyra schools
