PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION
McGee Middle School
Middle school represents a time of tremendous growth, exciting change, as well as new challenges for our children. We are so fortunate at McGee to have a dedicated, caring and knowledgeable staff to help guide our students through these middle school years. We look forward to a wonderful year as parents, staff and students work together to make McGee School the best it can be.
While fundraising is an important part of what we do, our parent group is certainly about more than asking for money! We are about families working together toward a common goal: Creating a better school and a better educational experience for our children. We strive to create an atmosphere where teachers, administrators and support staff can do their best work - and so can our children.
We look forward to working with Mr. Urso, the staff and all of you in support of McGee Middle School students. Whether you donate your time, your services, your skills or your spirit…YOU will be the reason we are successful for our children!
As the McGee Middle School PTO executive board, we will do our very best to make this year rewarding and memorable for everyone especially the children of McGee Middle School. We wish you and your family a wonderful end to your summer and we look forward to seeing everyone soon.
In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us, at our new McGee PTO email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fundraising Alternative: The Unfundraiser
The McGee PTO strives to provide a variety of ways for families to support the PTO. For those who prefer not to sell products or purchase items from traditional catalog fundraisers, the Unfundraiser is back! This is the easiest and most cost-effective way to contribute to our school.
What are the benefits of the Unfundraiser?
- No door-to-door sales
- No time spent soliciting and delivering orders
- Donations are tax deductible (check with your tax advisor for your specific situation)
- 100% of donations support McGee Middle School!
The PTO hopes all families will contribute!
If each McGee family were to give an average of $30 (just $3 a month for the 2015-2016 school year), we could raise approximately $15,000 to spend on our children!
We invite you to give what you can – no amount is too small, and larger donations are much appreciated! To donate, complete the form below and send it with your donation by September 30th.
Thank you in advance for your support.

Gift Cards are available for purchase from The McGee PTO Shop with Scrip Program.
You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple. Scrip-participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to our organization at a discount. Member families, like yours, buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value and our school keeps the difference as revenue. The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
ORDERING IS SIMPLE!!!
