Box Tops Contest Results!


And the winner is…. 7C! Congratulations for bringing in the 1586 Box Tops and earning a free dress day (TBD) as well as Starbucks for their cluster teachers! Great effort in the last week!

Can a single person make a difference? We heard a great story of one 7C mom who ask friends near and far – as far as Connecticut – to send her box tops. She collected and traded coupons for boxtops, submitting 500 box tops in one week!

In 2015, POMS PTO earned $1200 from box tops which go back into our classrooms as items such as plasticized rats for dissection in 7th grade science.

Please keep clipping and submitting them, even though the contest has ended! We will send the collected Box Tops at the end of May.

Final Box Top Count:

#1) 7C – 1586
#2) 6C – 1338
#3) 8C – 1230

6B – 1123
8B – 1068
7B – 1017
8A – 990
6A – 849
7A – 785


Teacher Appreciation


Teacher Appreciation week at POMS is right around the corner. The PTO will once again be showing our thanks for our awesome teachers by treating them to a week filled with special breakfasts, lunches, sweets and goodies in their boxes. But we really need your help to make it happen! Please take a look at the items we are requesting (including volunteer shifts) and sign up. There are many different needs so hopefully there is something that will work for you!!! THANK YOU in advance. Your time truly makes a difference!

Pin Oak Uniforms Donations


With 200 homes in the Meyerland area flooding, we are expecting we may have families that will be displaced, and may need clothes. Please send any gently used school uniforms and shoes to the library when we return to school. If you are able to have those freshly washed it will help with getting the clothing to students who need them.
We may need volunteers to assist with organizing clothing donations. If you are available, please sign up with signup genius at: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/30E0D4FAAA623A6F85-pinoak2
Thank you!
