Lyme School PTO


Our Parent-Teacher Organization's goal is to enrich the school community. We are currently using a project-based model for PTO involvement. Volunteers work in small teams to get things done. Parents and teachers who would like to help with annual events, programs, and fundraisers are encouraged to send us an email  to find out more. Meetings take place on an ad-hoc basis. Below is a list of some of the regular activities.


Annual Events:

  • Ice-Cream Social (late August)—An early evening event to welcome new families and celebrate the start of the new school year.
  • Teacher Lunches (November & April)—Parent-volunteers sign up to make a lunch dish for the teachers during conference week (when teachers meet with parents).
  • Trivia Night (January)—A fundraiser for the Artist-in-Residence Program (see below) and also a forum for classes to auction items in order to raise funds to offset the cost of each grade’s trip to Washington DC, when they reach 8th grade.


Programs & Projects:

  • The School Directory (October)—A team updates a printed booklet, which contains students’ and parents’ names, addresses, and contact details. Copies of the directory are then sold for a small fee as a fundraiser for school programs.
  • The Artist-in-Residence Program (November)—The PTO arranges for an artist (either visual, musical, or movement) to visit and work with students of all grades, K-8. This hands-on program brings expertise from sources outside the school to engage all of our students.
  • Box Tops for Education (October & May)—A team works together to coordinate collection, counting, and submission of box top vouchers, which are cut from participating-brand packages that school families may have bought.
