Yearbook

Volunteers are needed NOW to begin working on the 2013-2014 Yearbook. If you are interested in volunteering photographic skills, assist with layout, sales, or student/class details please email Jennifer Webber at pto@Branson.k12.mo.us.  A variety of skills are necessary for a great yearbook – creative types for photography and layout, salespeople, and volunteers that are detail oriented to ensure that names are spelled correctly and students are placed in the correct class. Volunteers receive training so that most of the work can be done on your home computer! Contact Jennifer today!

Fundraising

Branson PTO does one major fundraiser each year. 

September 5-19, 2013 is the scheduled time for our one and only BIG fundraiser for Branson Schools. Students and their families can help by selling to friends, family, and neighbors. (We do not encourage door to door selling.) We even have an  online store for those long distance friends and family members! We are looking for all families to participate. Remember the profits from this fundraiser will go towards project to benefit Branson's Pre K through 8th Grade. 

Here's how you can help your school. It's easy! 

Online Store: Go to gaschoolstore.com and enter the school code 3184769. Enter your students name and start shopping! All online sales count towards prizes through the fundraiser and help the school. 

Order Form: Fill out the order forms that came home with each student and collect all money with the order. Make checks payable to Branson PTO .

Family Pass Please notice that at the 20 items sold level, students can earn Go Karts and Pizza as a prize! In the event there is more than one child per family participating in the fundraiser, a combined total of 33 items sold will earn a family pass! You will find the family pass in the sales material that came home with your student. Please detach the Family Pass and turn in at the end of the sale with your packet if it applies to your family. 

Thank you for your support! 

The Spring and Fall Book Fairs are another great way to support our schools. These are not PTO fundraisers, but they benefit the schools by providing new books for our libraries. We will announce book fair dates for the 2013-2014 school year in the near future.

We also collect Campbell's Soup Labels and Box Tops. You can send these in with your child to school, or drop them in the assigned boxes in the lobbies of each elementary school. See the pictures below for examples. Thank You!
