At its heart, the PTO is a fundraising organization.
The PTO aims to contribute to the $20,000 each year it takes to enrich the education experience for the children.
Please help as generously as possible to reach the fundraising goals. Learn how the PTO uses the money it earns.
Annual Pawprint Campaign
The PTO asks for suggested donations of $10-25 per family, (smaller/larger donations welcomed) in lieu of selling an item as a fundraiser. Every dollar donated will go right back into the school - absolutely every dollar matters and every dollar is appreciated.
Last year the Johnson community wowed the PTO with over $2500 in donations.

The easiest and most effective way to support the PTO is by direct donation where 100% of proceeds go directly to achieving the PTO's goals. As a non-profit organization (501c3), your direct donation to the PTO is tax-deductible. If you would like to donate directly, make a check out to Johnson School PTO and drop it off at the front office or mail to Johnson School PTO, 99 South Main Street, Natick, MA 01760. See if your employer will match your contribution - tax ID number is 04-3167709.

The Box Tops program is transitioning to an online process. Download the Box Tops App and scan your receipts to earn money for Johnson. While the program is transitioning you can still clip box tops from purchases and send them in to school with your child.
The PTO then sends them into General Mills and redeems them. Each box top is worth 10¢ and believe it or not, they add up quickly! View all participating products. Make collections at home fun using these printable collection sheets!
