2017-2018 Williams PTO Annual Campaign

Support our students and staff by donating to the PTO Annual Campaign. Help fund enrichment programs for our kids, learning tools, and community events.

The Williams PTO, comprised of every family at Williams, provides financial and volunteer support to students, families and staff. The PTO is committed to our students future by funding core programs, initiatives and supplies that are not paid for by the Newton Public Schools.

This year, the PTO has budgeted over $40,000 to supplement our kids curriculum by funding Creative Arts & Sciences Programs, field trips, new technology, Art Room purchases, and Physical Education & Library supplies, as well as create various opportunities for our community to come together.

Throughout the year, the PTO runs school-wide fundraising events such as The Halloween Monster Bash, Sports Clinics, online auction, book fairs, comedy night, and others. To alleviate the financial burden on the Williams community, the PTO also actively applies for grants, and requests in-kind donations from local organizations. And while we are working hard to raise money in different ways, we still depend on your generosity and kind donation.

Our goal this year is to raise $11,250 before November 15, so that funds will be applied toward student use as early as possible. And while we ask you to consider donating $150 per student, we would be grateful for any amount you choose to contribute.
