Welcome to the Defino PTO!
The Defino Central PTO is made up of dedicated parents, teachers, and administrators whose purpose is to enhance the educational and social experiences at Defino Central Elementary. Our goal is to support the school with additional opportunities for parents, teachers, and students to learn, socialize, communicate, and grow.
We are dedicated to supporting the school’s mission in providing a well-rounded educational experience for our children. Our success really depended upon YOU, our incredible parents! We offer many ways to get involved, from donating an hour or more of your time, contributing or donating an item to our fundraisers and more - the opportunities are truly endless.
Through fundraising, we host many events each year for our students including Ice Cream Socials, Monster Mash, Author Day, Theater Week, Lip Sync, Assemblies, Carnival / Field Day, Book Fairs, Spirit Days and more. We also dedicate a portion of our budget to improvements for the school that are not in the district budget. In the past, we have paid for a digital school sign, basketball courts, projector & portable audio-visual systems, indoor recess boxes and more.
Equally important is our desire to help our community. Through our Defino Gives Back program, and the generosity of our Defino families, year after year we execute a highly successful food drive, a holiday gift drive, a Halloween costume collection, and other donation drives.
Lastly, we support the Defino staff and administration and together we work hard to maintain the academic excellence and sense of community that families expect at Defino. We “stock the fridge” in the teacher’s lounge monthly with snacks, treats & coffee etc. as well as honor the full staff and administration at our annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon. We have offered grants for teacher materials and generally do our best to support the overall morale and family atmosphere that we have come to know and love at Defino.
We encourage you to stay informed and become a vital part of your child’s education! We look forward to a memorable 2022-2023 school year!!
