We are pleased to announce that during our May PTO Executive Board meeting, the Board voted and approved the new members to fill our empty positions. We are considering this slate and we will leave this posted for 10 days; this will allow any parents to reach out to the exisiting co-presidents with any concerns at [email protected] Below are the names of the new Board members for your reference:
Co-President - Amy Au Calabrese
Treasurer - Janet Forero
Recording Secretary - Melissa Levin

We are looking forward to a great year next year! There are still open committee positions, if you are interested in getting involved.

2020–21 Executive Board and Committee Head Open Positions!

We know that times are not normal now and we are all adjusting to a new routine with school, work, and our daily lives, but we are starting to look ahead to when times will be normal again. We need your help. We would love to make next year's school year extra special for our kids. If you are interested in volunteering for an open board position or to help chair an event, head over to the Prairie PTO MEMBERSHIP TOOLKIT to check out those positions. We're looking forward to working with everyone next year!

Information Regarding Canceled PTO Events and Programs

Dear Prairie Families,
Refunds for canceled PTO events and programs due to the government-mandated closures will be processed in the form of an account credit on your Prairie PTO MEMBERSHIP TOOLKIT account. 

Account credits can be used for any future PTO Prairie purchase on MTK (Dessert Day, Special Lunch, spirit wear, etc.) and can be used for any of your continuing or incoming students at Pririe, but cannot be transferred between schools. 

Account credits will be applied on May 15. To check your credit account balance, please log in to your Prairie PTO MEMBERSHIP TOOLKIT account. Once logged in, your credit balance will be shpwn on your Forms home page.

You can use your Prairie account credit in one of three ways:

  • Keep your credit for a future Prairie PTO purchase on MTK
  • Request a check refund of your credit balance
  • Donate your credit balance to a special PTO Staff Appreciation Fund

Please click HERE to make your selection. All selections must be submitted by June 1.

If you have any questions, please contact PTO President Megan Robin or MTK Manager Jianing Yang. 

Thank you,
