Normandale PTO programs, services, and events benefit our students by enhancing the classroom experience, helping connect the Normandale community, and providing enrichment opportunities during and after school.
Supporting Classrooms and Teachers
The Normandale PTO helps support classrooms by providing Interns from France, coordinating bulk school supply purchases, organizing room parents and other support, and occasionally giving grants for one‑time expenses such as Responsive Classroom teacher training or Promethean Board purchases.
An important goal of the Normandale PTO is to help make connections within the Normandale community. Throughout the year, we provide numerous opportunities for families, students, and teachers to gather to socialize, serve, and celebrate. We also strive to keep people connected by providing timely communication of news and events relevant to the Normandale community.
Please see our events page for a complete list of this year’s events for the Normandale community. Some of our gatherings double as fundraisers or enrichment opportunities, but sometimes the focus is on service or celebration.
Increasing Enrichment Opportunities
Many enrichment opportunities available to Normandale students are coordinated by the PTO. Enrichment activities support the overall mission of Normandale Elementary which includes maximizing the immersion experience and increasing cultural awareness. Enrichment opportunities include:
Communicating with Families
We do our best to keep parents in the loop about what is going on at school and after school. Our primary means of communication is through our online newsletter La Liaison, but we also communicate through all school e-mails, via room parents, with signs inside and outside the school, and on this website. For detailed information on submitting articles and other communications, please refer to our Communications Guidelines.
We want to inform parents but we also want to be sure it is a two way conversation. We welcome feedback about the PTO and Normandale in general, both positive and negative. We invite you to send us your questions, comments, concerns and compliments via our online Suggestion Box. We want to hear from you!
