BEAUTIFUL SPRING DAY….FINALLY! Great weather, great to be outside, great day to be in Sea Girt. The Sea Girt PTO is entering the home stretch for the 2018-2019 school year and there are still lots of activities and fun things to still enjoy.
The online store has been updated to reflect lower prices and remaining inventory for our Sale! Quantities are limited so don’t wait to get the last of this year’s apparel at reduced prices. We don’t anticipate any more orders until next school year.
Dance-A-Thon-Rock for the Gym Refresh!
THANK YOU ALL FOR THE DONATIONS!
The Dance A Thon fundraiser this year was great. The kids enjoyed it so much they did not have time for their ice pops. Thank you for all the donations. We will be providing the Sea Girt School with a check from the donations to put to the Sea Girt Elementary School Gym Refresh. We would like to again thank all the volunteers, those who donated, the vendors and all those who showed up and supported the event.
Memorial Day Games
Coming Soon! May 27 10am-12pm at Baltimore Park.
What we are looking for now is volunteers. There is a sign-up sheet through Sign Up Genius click the link below
The above link can be utilized to sign up to help the PTO with this event anytime between 9 am and 1:30pm. The more volunteers the quicker the set up and clean up will be. Also please use this link for water and watermelon donations.
We are happy to announce that the new coffee house, Shore Pour has agreed to be part of this event and provide coffee at the Memorial Day Games. In addition, the Sea Girt Firehouse has again confirmed that the fire truck will be available for rides and ice cream will be provided, always a great treat. In addition Sea Girt Recreation has graciously agreed to have available the giant outdoor games that the kids love. We are so excited to have this event back and engage as much of our local community as we can.
This will also be combined with the Grand Reopening of the Baltimore Park after some needed renovations. Very exciting. Confirmed are the pony rides, face painting, balloons, rock wall and much more! There will be sack races, whiffleball, etc. We will also being having a donation booth for the soldiers again this year. There will be information sent home regarding appropriate donation items as it gets closer. Below is a flyer with a listing of items that can be dropped off the day of the Memorial Day Games at the Military Donation Table.
May 30th 7-9:30pm at the Parker House
The date and venue are set, local and easy to bike or walk to. Always a good time to relax and catch up! There will be a silent auction and plenty of socializing. There are many silent auction items that have already been obtained. Tickets are $25.00 per person. Looking forward to a fun time.
This is the time of year that the Sea Girt PTO Board request Capital Expenditure request from both teachers and parents. Please see the link below for the request form. Once all requests are submitted by the deadline the Sea Girt PTO will consider all requests, prioritize and try to fill all if not most of the requests as possible with the funds available.
