News & Events
The Annual Fund is the Countryside PTO’s largest fundraiser for the year. To contribute, click here. Countryside needs your contributions however large or small. Contributions now mean we won’t have to ask for lots of donations later. Thank you for your support.
October is Walk to School Month
On all Thursdays in October (beginning 10/5), students are encouraged to walk or bike to school! If you live too far to bike or walk, consider driving part of the way and walking the rest. If you need to get to work, maybe your child can walk with a friend! On Walk to School Thursdays, the school bus will drop kids off on Andrew Street behind the playground and volunteers will escort them the rest of the way to school.
Volunteers are needed on October Thursday mornings to escort students and hand out prizes! Sign up here!
Halloween Party – Volunteers Needed!
One of the kids’ favorite parties of the year is quickly (and spoooookily) approaching! We need all hands on deck to help make this night a screaming success! Options for pitching in include baking creepy (or not) cookies to sell at the concession stand, running ghastly games during the party, decorating the harrowing Haunted Hallway, working at the concession stand and more. Sign up here to help out!
Mystery Dinner 2017
Countryside Mystery Dinner will take place on Saturday, November 18th this year. Dinner hosts are needed as well as a host for dessert. Hosts can serve whatever they choose. Make it simple or show off your molecular gastronomy skills! The goal is simply to get Countryside parents together and to build community. If you are interested in helping in any way, please contact Barbara Mauger. Click here for more information about the event.
There plenty of other ways to get involved at Countryside and to help make this another incredible year!
Library Helpers: Looking for a great way to get to know your child’s class? Consider volunteering during his or her library class! Volunteers are needed to help shelve books. Click here for more information and to sign up. Thanks for lending a paw!
