Thurston PTO
  • Fun Run Fundraiser has kicked off! 

    This is Thurston's biggest fundraiser of the year and our goal is to raise $20,000!

    The money raised directly benefits all students at Thurston! The PTO uses money earned through fundraising to help cover the cost of field trips, all school events and assembliesteacher grantsclubs and activitiesschool improvement projects, and much more!

    The quickest way to reach our goal is to register your student(s) for free on our fundraising website, FundHub, and share the site with family and friends (also free!).  The whole school will be doing a Fun Run on April 21 with a fun obstacle course, popsicles, a spirit week, and rewards for the highest achieving classrooms! Parents are encouraged to come cheer on their child during the Fun Run! Click Here to see what time your student will be doing the FunRun!

Welcome to the Thurston PTO

  • Thurston’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a group of parents, teachers, and staff with the common goal of providing a bridge between the school and community, as well as the initiation of school improvement efforts. The PTO is also responsible for planning school fundraisers and school-wide events. Each year, PTO provides funding for field trips, classroom supplies, extra-curricular programs and clubs, literacy resources, curriculum enhancements, building beautification, and much more. This would not be possible without the contributions and support of our Thurston Community.
    The PTO meets the third Tuesday of every month on Zoom to discuss relevant topics, goals, and the appropriation of funds. Everyone is welcome to attend.
