Middle School PTO Direct Donation Drive
The Middle Schools’ PTO is pleased to announce our Direct Donation Drive! Each year the SMS PTO, which serves both Sherwood and Oak, works to raise nearly $40,000 to help fund field trips, materials, enrichment programs, etc., not covered by the school budget. Unlike sales drives and other programs that only give a percentage of donations back to the schools, Direct Donation is your chance to ensure that 100% of your donation will go directly to the programs and events that enrich our students experience at school. Donations may be made via Venmo, Paypal, or check. To read our entire Direct Donation letter, and for specifics for donating, please visit the following: http://bit.ly/SMSPTODonate.
