PTO (Parent Teacher's Organization)

  • To all the families of our Northview students,

    Welcome to and welcome back to Northview Elementary. The PTO is very excited about the upcoming year and all of the work that we are going to do to support the teachers and the students.

    Did you know that the PTO works on fundraising enough funds each year to pay for the following items:

    • Every student receives a Northview Elementary T-shirt to wear during events and to wear on field trips.
    • All-school field trips
    • Extra school supplies for all classrooms, including the specials (computer, music, art, library, etc.)
    • Teacher appreciation gifts
    • Any additional things the school may need some extra funds for

    We need your involvement to help make this a great year for your students. We have a few major events planned throughout the year as well as a few minor. 

    Some of the smaller things that we do to fundraise are:

    • Collect Box Tops for Education each month (You will receive flyers home each month to help you collect them) 
    • My Coke Rewards – send your coke bottle tops in for money for the school or you can enter the code yourself and donate money directly to the school
    • HyVee Receipts – simply send your receipts to the school. We receive a percentage back of the money you spend on groceries and in the pharmacy
      (gas doesn’t count)
    • Food Nights – these are still to be determined, but this is where flyers will be sent out to the parents recommending you eat at a specific place on a specific date at a specific time. We then receive a percentage of the food sales.

    We are still in need of some volunteers to help us run these events. Even if you can only donate an hour of your time each month, we could absolutely use it. Please also come learn about our budget and what we are spending all of the money on that will help our students this year.

    Have any questions or can’t make it but still want to be involved? Email us at nvelempto@gmail.com

    Sincerely,

    President: Jenny Venning

    Four Easy Ways to Fundraise and/or Donate to Northview Elementary

    Box Tops for Education

    Join us in raising money for the students at Northview Elementary by submitting Box Tops for Education! We receive roughly 10 cents for every box top and each month the PTO will be sending out Box Top for Education sheets to help your family collect box tops and send them in each month. Annually, we receive roughly $300 from this and this year we hope to double that amount!

    Coke Rewards

    Did you know that if you create a My Coke Rewards account, enter the codes found on the bottles, 12 packs, and 24 packs that you can donate anywhere from 5 cents (for the bottles) up to 30 cents for the 24 packs? All you have to do is search for Northview Elementary School in Olathe for schools to donate to. You can also send in all the coke bottle caps to the PTO as well. We have a Coke Rewards bin located in the front area of the school across from the main office.

    HyVee Receipts

    An easy way for you to donate your money without even trying is to send your HyVee receipts to the school. We earn money back for all the money spent on groceries and pharmacy (but not gas). Simply send all the receipts to the school in a ziplock bag. There is a HyVee Bin receipt located in the front lobby across from the main office.

    We have multiple sizes of 100% Recycled Plastic Trash Bags for Sale. The cost is only $13 per roll and they are available in these sizes: 18 gal. (white), 30 gal. (black), 39 gal. (yellow) and 55 gal. (green).  Please call the office at 913-780-7570 to get yours TODAY!
