About Us


Welcome to all our new and returning families!

 The 2016-2017 school year at the Linscott-Rumford Elementary School is upon us and we hope you and your families are just as excited for the year as we are!

 The Linscott Rumford Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is made up of parents, teachers, support staff and our principal Ernest Wells

 We meet the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm in the school library

 

    The primary goals of our PTO are:

  • To promote the welfare of our children in the homes, school and community
  • To bring closer the relationship of home and school so parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of the child
  • To enhance the educational facilities and opportunities for the students at Linscott-Rumford


We meet these goals by organizing family fun events throughout the year, supporting teachers and staff, and fundraising

 Here's a list of some of our activities

 For Fun

  • Back to School Ice Cream Social
  • Halloween Float in the Annual Lion’s Parade
  • Pancake Breakfast
  • Holiday Shoppe
  • Pizza Bingo (technically a fund raiser but it is so fun, it needs to be here!)
  • Spelling Bee
  • Food/Can Drives and Crazy Hat Days; all proceeds are donated to local charities
  • Cal’s Cart 

Supporting Teachers and Staff

  • Field Trips and Enrichment Programs which have included a historical tour of Woburn, Science Tellers, Abe Lincoln, Change is Simple, Holiday Hurrah Musical Program, Top Secret Science, Bug Works, North America Map, and      the Map Lady
  • Parents Assisting Linscott Staff (PALS)  - volunteers who help teachers get items ready for the classroom ranging from cutting,  pasting, laminating to sorting/removing worksheets from work books
  • Room Parents to help coordinate classroom activities and organize classroom Healthy Snack Sales
  • Staff Appreciation Week

 Fundraising

While it is our goal to keep fundraising at a minimum, we fundraise to continue providing our teachers with an allowance to support their classroom activities, provide field trips and enrichments programs at no cost to our families and, have a bit of fun at the same time! 

Our major fundraisers include:

  • The Walk-a-Thon 
  • Cookie and Pie Sales for Thanksgiving and Christmas
  • Wreaths and Kissing Ball Sales
  • SCRIPS Holiday Gift Cards
  • Healthy Snack and Raffle Sales
  • Pizza Bingo
  • Book Fair
Our ongoing fundraisers include:
  • Box Tops and Labels for Education – clip and save those little tops from lunchbox snacks, cereals and soups; we get free .10 each one we send in 
  • AmazonSmile – shop through this link on Amazon.com and they’ll give us .5% of the price of your eligible purchases back to the PTO for our children
  •  A+ School Rewards at Stop and Shop – register your card and earn points (which turn into cash) for Linscott every time you shop
 Working together we can truly make a difference at the Linscott-Rumford

 Every positive imprint we make on our children can go a long, long way; that’s why we look to you, the families, to help make our PTO such a success

 So what can you do?

There are big and small ways to get involved and no matter what you do, it is always appreciated and crucial to the success of our kids, our school and our PTO

  • Participate with your family in our Family Fun events and enjoy our school community.
  • Volunteer with our PALS program or become a room parent 
  • Come to a PTO meeting and share your thoughts and ideas
  • Donate items for the food drives, the Healthy Snack and Raffle Sales or for Teacher Appreciation week
  • Clip your Box Tops, register your Stop and Ship Card, shop through the AmazonSmile link and if you need gift cards at the holidays, buy through our SCRIPS program 

 We look forward to getting to know you and your family
