What We Fund

Want to know what the PTO does? We provide nearly $50,000 annually in funding for items needed by our teachers and our students because state and district funds can often be depleted by essential needs. The JES PTO helps to fund a variety of educational services and social activities for our JES community. Here's just some of what the JES PTO funded recently:

  • Teacher grants ($225/teacher)

  • Book Fair gifts ($25/teacher)

  • Teacher and Staff Appreciation meals and gifts

  • Academic Excellence awards

  • Johnson PTO Scholarship for graduating HHS Senior ($1,000)

  • COSI on Wheels
