Open PTO Board Positions for 2022-2023

As we start to say good-bye to our teachers and classmates for the summer break, please start thinking about how you will contribute to Northeast for next school year. There are many opportunities to help with activities and programs both during the school day and during non-school hours.

The following PTO Board Member positions are available for the 2022-2023 school year: President, VP-Fundraising, VP-Non-Fundraising, VP-Community Service, and Room Parent Coordinator. Use this link to view general descriptions of these roles, and email [email protected] with questions.

There are also many committees to work with during the year. If you are interested in helping with Yearbook, Book Fairs, Learning to Look, Teacher Appreciation, Northeast Garden, or Field Day please email [email protected].

All these events and activities ONLY happen with parent and caregiver support. If we want them to continue, we need YOU to volunteer. Thank you for your time and consideration, and the NEPTO wishes everyone a safe, happy, and memorable summer.


School Supply Kits for 2022-2023



Northeast Elementary School is partnering with Bright SchoolKitz® to provide school supplies to match your teacher’s wish list. All classroom teachers in each grade level will have the same supply lists next year. So you can order BEFORE classroom placements are announced. Free up your summer and enjoy it! Order now and eliminate the back-to-school shopping hassle.

Kits are filled with brand names (Crayola, Elmer’s, etc.) and quality products that are competitively priced with local and large retailers. Hurry! The earlier you order, the lower the price! All kits are designed to be shipped to your home.

If you would like to donate towards purchasing kits for Northeast students, the option is available in the “add-ons” section after adding a kit to your cart.

Parents & Caregivers Night Out

Have you signed-up for the Northeast Parents/Caregivers Night Out yet? It’s just a few days away! Bring your friends and make some new ones as we socialize and decorate cookies at Nora’s Ovenworks. We will be decorating star cookies to share with our staff for Teacher Appreciation Week. It’s BYOB and the PTO will provide some snacks and water. Use the following link to register:

Fee is $35/person to cover the cost of facility and materials. Hope to see you there!


Let’s Make Northeast a No Idle Zone!

During Earth Week we want to make an effort to decrease our emissions. One way we can do that is by not idling while waiting in the pick up line at dismissal. If you get to school early and the line is stopped, please SHUT OFF your engines. This will release less toxins in the air and ozone regional haze.

Volunteer To Be A Room Parent

We are looking for volunteers to be room parents for the 2021-2022 year. Room parents are needed to assist each teacher and act as a liaison between the PTO and the parents of the children in each class. At various times throughout the year, room parents will be asked to disseminate communications from the PTO to the class parents via e-mail. This is a great way to get involved with the PTO and also be involved in your child’s class without a big time commitment.

Please email Christine Meek by Friday, September 3rd if you are interested in being  a room parent for your child’s classroom.


Dr. Marinello’s Reminder Regarding Out-Of-State Travel and COVID Precautions

As the holidays approach, Northeast families may be planning travel to see family or may be planning to host family from out-of-town. Please take a minute to review Dr. Marinello’s reminder of the Connecticut’s executive order regarding travel. It is important to remember that you or your family members may need to quarantine before returning to school. It takes all of us to keep our community healthy & safe. Thanks!


Volunteer To Be A Room Parent!

The Northeast PTO is looking for a caregiver from each classroom to serve as a “Room Parent” for the school year. While there will be no in-school activities for parents this year, the Room Parent can help distribute information from the PTO and classroom teacher to families in the classroom.

If you are interested in serving as your class’s Room Parent for 2020-2021, please reach out to Christine Nanos. Thank you!
