Vermillion PTO

A HUGE shout out to The Main Street Inn for offering (I promise we didn't ask!) to pay for Fun Run shirts this year. This is always a huge expense, and typically our PTO sponsors cover it. As a group, we decided we didn't want to ask local businesses for sponsorship this year due to the economic hit many of them are currently taking. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the Main Street Inn!
The annual Fun Run is PTO's biggest fundraiser each year. Remember, ALL money donated to the PTO goes right back to the schools in the form of teacher grants, classroom supplies, and more! Please consider making a donation by either sending it to school with your JK-5th grade child or directly through Paypal at the following link: forms.gle/LiQNwuYvDr1hoqGU7

We have many opportunities for volunteers throughout the year!  See below for some opportunities that may be right up your alley!
*This page will be updated as the year progresses, so stay tuned!

2 Hour Power Volunteer

Want to help but only have a limited amount of time to do so?  Consider signing up to be a 2 Hour Power Volunteer.  With this kind of volunteering, your only asked to give us two hours of your time.  Once you’ve given us that time, we promise we won’t ask for more!  Sign up here.

Box Tops

Be a Box Tops for Education hero.  We are looking for someone to stop at the schools to collect box tops, sort them, and submit them to the PTO President.  Please e-mail any of our PTO board members if you are interested in helping!

Bulletin boards

Are you a DIY-er or just enjoy creating things?  We need someone to create and maintain PTO bulletin boards at Austin, Jolley and VMS.  This would involve creating and maintaining the bulletin board display to best reflect current PTO events and ways to connect with the schools.  Please e-mail any of our PTO board members if you are interested.

Teacher Grants

Each year the Vermillion PTO has limited funds to award to programs that benefit the students of the Vermillion School District.  A grant, if approved, must be completed and submitted for reimbursement by the end of the current school year.


  • The person requesting the funds must be a current member of the Vermillion PTO Chapter.
  • Preference is given to those grants that directly affect Vermillion School District students.
  • Grant limits (for each school year): $150 per classroom, $250 per grade level, and $500 per school building. These levels may be exceeded in certain instances, as decided by the PTO Board of Directors.
  • If a grant is approved, it is up to the applicant to purchase the item and submit a receipt for reimbursement unless an alternative arrangement has been discussed and agreed upon by the PTO Board of Directors.


Box Tops for Education

Don’t forget to bring in any Box Tops you have to your child’s school by February 21st, 2020!

Box Tops for Education is one of our ongoing fundraisers for PTO. The PTO will use the funds & points obtained through this program to directly benefit our children & our school. The funds allow the PTO to purchase much needed supplies (for art, PE, classrooms, etc.). Thank you for your support!!

General Mills “Box Tops for Education” can be found everywhere, on a wide variety of items, including Huggies products, Cottonelle products, many Betty Crocker and Pillsbury products, numerous brands of cereal, Yoplait yogurt, Juicy Juice, and many more. (For a full list of participating products, click here.)  10 TOPS = $1.00 for our school!!  Simply clip the Box Tops cleanly along the dotted lines, being careful not to cut off the expiration date, and turn them in to your child’s teacher.

(You can print this newsletter if you’d like a place to organize your box tops.  You do not need to organize them this way, however. You can just send them in a baggie or envelope to school as well.)



Box Tops for Education has gone digital!  Download the new app to credit box tops online!  For a limited time, you can get double-points because we can STILL ACCEPT the cardboard tops until they expire!  Scan those receipts, then cut out the box tops to get our schools .20/top!
