What is the PTO?
 
The Koontz Parent Teacher Organization is a non-profit organization that supports Koontz Intermediate students. We use the funds to pay for and organize school programs and events, as well as purchase needed items for the school. Here are some of the things we support:
  • Cultural Arts Programs
  • Visiting Authors and Assemblies
  • Community Events
  • Family Fun Nights
  • Field Trip supplements
  • Music Programs and School Plays
  • School Garden
  • Heritage Night Event
  • Movie Night
  • and more!

Thanks to your help, donations and support last year, the PTO purchased supplies, materials for Koontz Intermediate including a new addition to our sound system, classroom and educational computer software programs!

The No Fuss Fundraiser will be our major fundraiser this year at C.T. Koontz PTO. No-Fuss Fundraiser will eliminate our traditional fundraisers such as selling gift wrapping or candy. However, we still need to raise funds to support our programs and enhance educational resources at our school.

This fundraiser will run starting August 25th through the end of this school year. With this type of fundraiser 100% of the donations will go directly to the PTO to help support many of our programs. Checks should be made payable to C.T. Koontz PTO and returned to school with the form below.

Use the Publix Partners key card when you shop at Publix Super Markets in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Every time you use your key tag card at the checkout our school receives a percentage of what is spent with no cost to you. This card can be used by parents, teachers, school administrators and anyone interested in supporting our school. The more you shop at Publix, the more money our school will receive.

How does this work? Use the card at the checkout and at the end of every quarter, Publix will award our school with $250.00 for every $37,500 spent.
