Who are we? As a parent/guardian of a Solon student, you are invited to be a member of the PTO, along with members of the Solon staff. The goal of this organization is to enrich the experience of students and teachers by supporting school events, raising funds to enhance school programs and provide opportunities for students, and to help build positive connections between the home and school communities.
Officer elections for PTO are held each Spring, and our Executive Committee is comprised of Solon parents, and we are always in search of other parents/guardians to become involved to whatever degree you are able. Everyone is encouraged to become involved by serving on committees or volunteering for events.
Your 2023-2024 PTO officers are:
Amanda Vagelatos/Mary Harkins, Co-Presidents
Carol McClay/Jaclyn Knight, Co-Vice Presidents
Teresa Kowalczyk, Secretary
Aimee Copenhafer, Treasurer
What do we do? The PTO organizes and spearheads school community building and fundraising events in order to support opportunities for students and families not allocated for within the school budget.
What types of events/initiatives does the PTO support? Currently, the PTO underwrites and/or plans and solicits volunteers for events such as mentor/child nights, school assemblies, Birthday Sundaes, supplies for Kindergarten KickOff & Popsicles in the Park, ice cream treats and Teacher Appreciation Week, among other initiatives. New ideas are always welcome and appreciated!
Educational Support: Every Solon teacher may access up to $150 in PTO reimbursement for classroom supplies not provided for within the budget, and administration has access to a $500 allotment for items that will benefit the school. Additionally, the PTO organizes hospitality tables for school music programs, underwrites DARE program costs and a 5th grade “graduation” celebration, as well as funding two $500 scholarships/year for former Stingers toward their first year of college.
How do I get involved? Attend a PTO meeting, held in the media center the second Wednesday of each month at 4pm.
