Committees

Many of the programs offered at Moye are a result of the PTO's efforts. Please consider volunteering your time to ensure we are able to provide a variety of engaging and thoughtful experiences for the kids. Click on the Chairperson's name next to each committee to email the chair directly with questions about the program or to inquire about how you can help! Thank you!

Art To Remember- Kim Joggerst

This fundraiser uses our children’s artwork they do in class. Their artwork can be transformed into many different items which are available for purchase. Volunteers are needed to help order the items and distribute them upon delivery.

 

Birthdays- Gwen Hites

Once a month, all students who have a birthday in that month can choose between a piece of cake or a bookmark in the cafeteria during their lunch period. (Summer birthdays are not forgotten!) Committee members distribute the cake and bookmarks. Cost is covered by the PTO and Sodexho.

 

Book Fairs- Michelle Ashby

Scholastic Book Fairs in the fall and spring allow students to buy books during their library time or before/after school. Parents may shop any time during book fair hours. Volunteers are needed each day to set up and organize the books, help students make their choices, get information from teachers for their “wish lists” and collect money. Proceeds from the fall fair are used to acquire books for Moye's library; proceeds from the spring fair are used to help students buy books at half price. Thursday evening of Book Fair week is “Family Reading Night” and “Donuts with Dad” is before school.

Cosmic Bingo - Hollie York

This will be the primary fundraiser for our school. In an effort to keep our kids from having to sell various items to the general public, traditionally the PTO has hosted an adult evening. Last year, this event netted more than $24,000 for our school, allowing our PTO to provide many much needed and anticipated programs for our school. Please consider offering your help.

Get Smart With Art - Jamie Yates & Sara Ensminger

This state-recognized program is designed to expose students to different types of art in a comfortable, age-appropriate manner. Volunteers present a different work of art once a month to their selected grade (October through May). Volunteers help create presentations that encourage both fun and an understanding of art. A presentation takes about 20-30 minutes for each class. Schedules are developed at the beginning of the school year for flexibility between presenter(s) and teachers. There is no need to have any art background. All materials are provided.

They receive a stamp on their card for each lap. Each card contains 5 miles. For each 5 mile card they receive a different color foot and a keychain to put the feet on. The feet are in the order of white, orange, green, blue, silver and gold. The goal is to reach the gold foot of 30 miles. There is a celebration at the end of the year for anyone receiving their gold foot. We also have medals for the top 3 boys and girls of each grade.
