PELHAM ELEMENTARY PTO
The Pelham Elementary PTO is an incorporated, non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that works to enrich the educational experience for the school community. The PTO assists with funding for staff support, classroom supplies, school enrichment programs, field trips, activities, and provides special events to help engage families and build a strong school community.
All parents of Pelham Elementary students, as well as all Pelham Teachers & Staff, are all considered to be members of the PTO and are welcome to attend meetings to share ideas about the PTO and its activities.
If you are unable to attend a meeting, but are interested in volunteering, or have an idea or concern, please contact the Pelham PTO at Pelham.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for taking pride in such a special school. Your support helps to achieve big things for our little kids.

Pelham PTO Direct Appeal
ALERT!!!! A GENEROUS DONOR HAS OFFERED A $1,000 MATCH GRANT! THIS MEANS YOUR DONATION WILL BE DOUBLED!
WELCOME BACK - Direct Appeal 2020/2021
The past five months have been different, a bit scary and complicated. As if we weren’t aware of this before, we are very lucky to be part of the Pelham School Community. Our staff quickly helped students transition to online learning and not only provided educational support but were able to continue to nurture our students through technology. We are so very grateful for them. Our small but mighty school really shined during this unfortunate pandemic.
This direct appeal takes the place of catalog fundraisers, which would yield limited proceeds for the school and a whole bunch of unwanted items for you and your family. Instead, we would rather see 100% of your proceeds go directly to the school. We want to be able to continue to support our staff, students and school and we need your support in order to do that! Please consider donating online at https://www.mightycause.com/story/Ptodirectappeal or by mailing a check to Pelham Elementary PTO, 45 Amherst Road, Pelham, MA 01002.
