Please join us as we wrap up this school year's PTO business and express our thanks to all our wonderful volunteers with a tasty lunch! Also, come find out who won Volunteers of the Year and to vote in this year's Legacy Gift!
The Legacy Gift is one of the many ways we put our members' generous support to work! In addition to supporting student activities and classroom mini grants, the PTO makes a significant gift to the Colts Neck School District at the end of each President's two-year leadership service. This year's Legacy Gift is the culmination of 3 years of work under the leadership of Danielle Quigley and Amy Dimes. Together with the principals and superintendent, the PTO agrees on funding major projects that will make learning and growing in Colts Neck schools the best for our children!
