How We Give Back

As our student population has grown, so have the needs of our students. Given the economic diversity at our school, the Thompson PTO strives to ensure that all children at Thompson have the opportunity to participate in PTO events, regardless of their ability to pay. The PTO offers financial assistance to any Thompson student who needs it.

Since 2017, as part of this program, the PTO has sponsored students who need them with tickets to attend Movie Night, Literacy Night, Science EXPLO, the Ice Skating Party, and the Family Picnic. The PTO also sponsored the purchase of spirit gear, books during the school’s Book Fair, and pictures for Picture Day. 

If your child(ren) would like financial assistance for any PTO-related programs, please contact Ms. Vicki Rose, Administrative Assistant, at All information provided will be kept strictly confidential.

The PTO also supports the Thompson and Arlington communities in the following ways:

  • Arlington EATS
  • Cradles to  Crayons
  • Thanksgiving collections
  • Holiday Help Program
