Hello Hale Families,

I wanted to introduce myself and get us rolling on school support.

I’m Marcy Bouley Eckel and I have two 8th graders at the school. My job is to help facilitate support for Hale through our PTO. 

Our model in Stow is one integrated PTO for elementary and middle school. We work cooperatively as a large group seeking sponsorships and doing community outreach for support, but our fundraising to parents is unique for each school. At Hale, the year-to-year needs are smaller.

Financial contributions from our families play an important role in supporting our teachers, staff and funding additional projects, experiences, and scholarships. 

The money we solicit from parents funds things outside of the regular school budget and we work closely with Principal Grady to identify needs.

The priorities identified to date are: scholarships, buses to field trips, new equipment, and staff appreciation. Last year, we solicited separately for staff appreciation, but ideally, our family community would make one single gift to support all the needs. The suggested amount for this is $50 per student. We understand that every family has different circumstances, and we remain grateful for donations of any size. 

To kick-off our year, please make your gift now to support our students, our teachers, our staff and our school: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted_button_id=NBBCK9R37PA3L

We cannot do this important work without your support.

Please reach out if you have any questions, suggestions or if you would like to get more involved. 

Thank you!



Thank you SPTO Sponsors!
