Include Your Student in the Directory

It’s time to update your student information for the Directory.
Head to join.myschoolanywhere.com and enter invitation code POMS2016.

Join PTO at $50 or higher to receive a printed copy of the Directory in October.

POMS PTO collects your information online and then gives you secure access to the online system.

How do you access the online directory?
Once we have received and reviewed your family’s information, you will receive an email with login instructions.

What’s so great about the ONLINE directory?
• It’s secure – your family will have a unique login and password and the directory can’t be lost or stolen.
• It’s free – you can search by student’s first name, grade, teacher and family last name.
• You can create your own custom list of frequently called families.
• You can access the family directory from any internet device: your computer, smart phone, iPad, etc.
Is it secure? YES! All data is stored behind secure firewalls and can only be accessed by authorized users with a validated username and encrypted password. All data is viewed and passed using SSL encryption.

Questions? pinoakdirectory@gmail.com

Time for Box Tops for Education

Box Tops

Our school is participating in the Box Tops for Education™ program. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Box Tops are each worth 10¢ and they quickly add up to real cash for our school. Please help us meet our current school year earnings goal of $1500. There is a collection box in the front office for your convenience.

To help our school, just look for pink Box Tops on products, clip them, and send them to school. For more information on the Box Tops for Education program, including a list of participating products and our school’s progress, visit www.BTFE.com. Be sure to become a member to receive exclusive coupons and recipes and learn about extra ways for our school to earn.

Thanks for your help!
