Fundraising, Advertising and Volunteering
Sun, Sep 5 3:55pm
Hello Aiken Families! We were so excited to see all the kids back in school on Wednesday. A quick shout out to Swoop for welcoming our families and back. Also, thank you to the parents that were able to attend our 1st day of school coffee social. As we all said, it was so nice to be in the building again and being able to safely mingle amongst each other. 
The Back to School Bash at Back East Brewery was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who was able to make it out. 
It was great seeing old friends and meeting new parents. If we had that much fun at the beginning of the school year, just wait until our Spring Parents Night out. 
We also want to remind everyone that you do NOT have to be on the PTO Board to volunteer to help!  There are various committees and events you can join that fit your schedule!  
Here is a special message from our Fundraising Committee: 
We want YOU to join the Parent's Night out 2022 Event Committee!  If you can believe it, we are already starting to plan this spring's PNO event and we have already started planning to make this year's event even fun, exciting, and successful for our school.  We are excited to be holding PNO at The Pond House on May, 12, 2022.  We are looking for a dedicated group of volunteers to serve on our planning committee to help bring our vision for PNO to life.  Time commitment will be one meeting a month until we get closer to the event,  then likely bi-weekly meetings.  Our first meeting will be in November.  
For the committee - if you are interested in joining - we will need help with soliciting for auction items, decorations, invitations/RSVPs, soliciting for sponsorship, and more.  We are also looking for a dedicated secretary to take notes at every meeting and keep the rest of the committee informed of all updates and details.  If you are interested - and we hope you are!- please email Julie Cutler and Amanda Pihl at   We will be keeping a list of everyone and reaching out in October.  We are looking forward to a really great PNO this year and hope to make up for some lost revenue during covid.  Thank you in advance for supporting this event.  
Please take a moment to check out the current fundraisers going on!
