Attention Parents: Allow your PTO to Make your Life Easier!

As a family with a middle schooler, we’ve all had a fabulous time selling, collecting money, and delivering goods for various fundraisers over the years. And while all of us have undoubtedly enjoyed these fun activities, your PTO would like to propose something new!

We would like for you to consider this no-hassle fundraiser, one that will certainly help us reach our goals this year for enriching the educational experience for students, staff, and faculty.

$15 I do not like to bake, so here is the money I would have spent buying those cupcakes.

$25 I do not want to bother my friends, family, and co-workers, so here is the money I would have spent buying wrapping paper and candles.

$50 I do not want to walk, swim, or run in any activity that has “-athon” in the title, so here is the money I would have spent on my child’s free t-shirt.

$75 I do not want to attend any fancy gala events, so here is the money I would have spent on a new outfit.

$100 I really wouldn’t have helped anyway, so here is $100 to forget my name!

I am making this donation to express my appreciation for having nothing to sell, buy, or do except fill out this form and send in my donation!

We hope you got a nice laugh from this! Kidding aside, we know how busy your life is, and we believe this type of fundraiser would be a win-win for all!

The PTO’s mission is to identify and support educational, artistic, and cultural needs and opportunities outside of traditional teaching methods, while striving to provide additional enrichment experiences.

Here are some of the wonderful things we have been able to accomplish with donation dollars:
Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) club supplies
Spero and Hummingbird kits for OLSD STEM sisters
Ohio Model of United Nations (OMUN) teacher chaperone fees for the yearly conference
Enrichment outings for 8th grade students unable to take the Washington DC class trip
Kinesthetic classroom teacher training
Author visits
120 books for 6th grade IELA
Veteran’s Day breakfast
Second lobby monitor

How to Donate:

1. Write a check payable to OOMS PTO and deliver it to the school office or send by mail.

Orange Middle School PTO 

2680 East Orange Road
Lewis Center OH 43035

2. Click on the DONATE button on the top of this Home Page to contribute through PayPal.
