VANDALIA – The Morton Middle School PTO is kicking-off its 2015-2016 Membership Drive with a gift basket raffle during Morton’s Back to School Night onThursday, August 20 from 5-6:30 p.m.

Membership fees are only $5 (payable in check or cash). For Morton families and staff that sign up during the Back to School Night, membership includes a raffle ticket for these special gift baskets, all filled with merchandise donated by local businesses. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $1 each or 6 tickets for $5. Six different baskets will be raffled during the event.

The summer may be coming to a close, but there’s still time to take in a Dayton Dragons game. The lucky winner of the Dragons basket will receive four tickets to a home game and have new Dragons merchandise to support the home team.

The new school year heralds in the start of practices for families – lots of practices. The movie basket will give the winning family everything needed for a movie night at home, together. The spa basket is perfect for relieving all the back-to-school stress. Two school supply baskets are filled with school supplies, including locker accessories and organizers to help keep all the beginning-of-the-year paperwork in order.

Finally, the gift card basket is packed with gift cards from local business that’ll help take care of your car or just take care of dinner.

Morton’s PTO is made up of volunteers from the Morton community and is dedicated to providing the students and staff of Morton assistance throughout the year. Several events are already planned.

PTO meetings are held on the second Monday of each month and are open to all in the Morton community.

PTO Membership Drive will continue until September 30, and volunteers are always needed. Contact Debbie Robinson/PTO President (drob84@yahoo.com) if you’d like to get involved.
