Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year, JGS!
We hope this finds you healthy and excited about the new school year. While it will look different this year, our families are just excited to be back together with yours!
A little history about our PTO: The Jones-Gordon PTO was formed in 2018 and formalized in 2020. The goal of the PTO is to build community through parent and kid activities – both in and out of school. In the past, some of our activities have included: Jump Night at Sky Zone, Movie Nights, and Roller skating for the entire family. We have hosted new family socials, Mom’s Night Out, and holiday parties for the kids. Our goals in the future are to continue to build on our programs while giving back to our amazing school.
The PTO is led by Nicole Bahu and Emily Dietz as co-presidents. Sandee Levine is our treasurer, Dana Alonso is our teacher liaison and Michelle Gibbs is our new secretary. Other positions include social directors for lower, middle, and high school led by Emily Dietz, Ashley Weigers, Michelle Rowley, and Susan Schuchman. Courtney Baldonado leads our teacher giveback program which includes luncheons, holiday gift wrap, and other various treats throughout the year.
We typically meet 6-7 times per year. This year is going to be quite different, due to COVID, so here is what we are hoping to do this year. First, we hope to hold separate school-division family movie nights on the back lawn at JGS (late Fall or early Winter). The second project we are working on is one we are very excited about. This year marks the first year that we have two students graduating who have been at Jones-Gordon since its inception. To commemorate this exciting milestone, we are going to kick off our “Leaving a Legacy Brick-by-Brick Program”. We will be selling engraved bricks that will pave our schoolyard. These bricks will be personalized and can be purchased by former students, graduates, and new families. We will send more information later in the year.
If you have any other ideas for the PTO during these unprecedented times, or if you’d like to join or just be an active part of the PTO, please reach out to either Nicole Bahu or Emily Dietz by phone or by using the form at right.
We look forward to seeing you all soon!
