There are lots of items in the lost and found. Coats, sweatshirts, lunch boxes, etc. Please come check or tell you kiddos to do it! Consider labeling your child’s clothes especially ones that can get easily lost like sweatshirts, coats and gloves. The lost and found is inside the front door by the auditorium. You can always sign in and look for lost items.

The Memorial Spaulding PTO is entirely run by volunteers and funded by both your donations and participation in our After School Creative Arts program (“ASCA”). Annually, we reach out to families via the Annual Appeal drive, to request donations for the PTO. Every little bit helps us to fund wonderful enriching events like Creative Arts and Sciences (“CASC”), and fun community building events (e.g., Movie Night, Halloween Dance, and International Night). It also provides mini-grants for teacher programs and training, beautification efforts for our school, and helped build our new playground. Most recently, we have provided technology updates to a number of our classrooms! We suggest a donation of $50 per child, but encourage families to donate ANY amount possible, more or less. Please check to see if your company has a matching program, a list is available on the PTO’s website. This is a one-time donation, tax-deductible and every donation qualifies you to two free tickets to our wonderful Mystery Dinner, which of course is optional. To make your donation, please click this PayPal link to make your donation today.
