Welcome to Rosa Lee Carter Elementary School PTO !
This site provides you with the latest news and information on PTO events, fundraisers, and volunteer opportunities. We sponsor many exciting events for our community throughout the school year and are continuously looking for ways to raise funds to support our school's needs. As always, your support and time is necessary to be able to achieve our ambitious, but realistic goals.
PTO's mission is to provide school with funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child.
- To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community;
- To raise the standards of home life;
- To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth;
- To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth;
- To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental and social education.
How Do I Get Started with the PTO?
- Become a PTO member. Visit the Membership tab to get the details on how to join the PTO and receive incentives throughout the year.
- Register for PTO Communications. Whether you are a paid member or not, complete the membership form indicating that you would like to receive PTO communications (email and/or text). Only families that have indicated they wish to receive communications will receive communications sent by the PTO informing of events, fundraisers and volunteer opportunities.
- Participate in Cashless Fundraisers. One of the easiest ways for the PTO to earn money is simply by you doing your normal shopping. Stores such as Harris Teeter, Giant and Amazon give money back to the school for each purchase you make. See the Fundraising tab to learn how to link your store accounts to RLC.
- Volunteer!! The PTO is run entirely by volunteers. We need all of our RLC community to pitch in to make our events a success. Log onto the website and then visit the Events tab of this site to see current volunteer opportunities.
- Show your Spirit!! Purchase school spirit wear and for students to wear on spirit days and at events. Spirit wear is sold at select events.
- Attend PTO Meetings. Join us at our PTO General Meetings to help us plan our PTO events and initiatives, determine how we raise are funds and identify how our money should be spent. We are always open to hear fresh ideas! See the Meetings and Minutes tab for the dates of our General Meetings.
