After a long absence in the community, community members are trying again on a parent teacher organization in Clinton schools.
Most PTOs aim to provide schools with volunteers and funds for events and necessary resources. Elementary principal Beth Wickenhauser indicates Nicole Finch is heading up the organization and notes the organization is calling on the community to help them take over some of the existing fundraisers as well as getting the community more involved in the schools.
According to Wickenhauser, the organization is hoping to get enough volunteers from the community to spread the workload across a lot of people.
The business community might be called upon. Rather than hoping to tap their financial resources, Wickenhauser says they hope business leaders will be willing to be a part of in the classroom outreach.
To volunteer, contact Lincoln School at 935-6383, Douglas Elementary School at 935-2987, or Clinton Elementary school at 935-6772.
