The Ithan PTO At Work!!
The Ithan PTO raises funds through the Ithan Parent Sponsor Program, our annual "Spring Thing" school fair, Ithan Clothing, Book Fair (a fall event at school with year-round online shopping), & Ithan Directory. Online shopping, grocery rewards or dining out programs, including escrip and Giant A+, also raise a lot of money for the PTO.
Through a lot of hard work and good will on the part of Ithan parents, teachers, staff and students our fundraisers are an amazing success! Click the links above for more information and to learn how to sign up.
Where does that money go that is raised by the PTO? Here are just some of the wish list items the PTO has purchased: Outdoor Fitness/Playground Equipment, A New Laminator Machine for IES teachers & PTO (IPC), Annual Teacher & Classroom Gifts, and Ithan Technology Initiative. The PTO also funds many cultural arts activities and assemblies throughout the year!

Every dollar of your contribution goes to support our children, teachers and school. The parent sponsor program and Spring Thing are the PTO's primary funding sources that enable us to bring to Ithan our fabulous cultural arts program, new playground equipment, iPads for our classrooms, and much, much more!
