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.

In 2017-18, as part of this program, students received tickets to attend Movie Night, Literacy Night, Science EXPLO, Ice Skating Party, and the Family Picnic. The PTO also sponsored the purchase of spiritwear gear, books during the school’s Book Fair and pictures for Picture Day. We’ve continued supporting these same programs in 2018-19.

If your child or children would like financial assistance for any PTO-related programs, please fill out the form and return it to Ms. Vicki or Mrs. Donato. 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
