Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!
Dear Meadow View Family,
On behalf of the Meadow View PTO, we are excited to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year at Meadow View! Whether you have kindies, sixth graders or anyone in between, there are many ways for you to get involved and be part of our MDVE community.
The PTO meets roughly once a month at 6 p.m. in the MDVE library/media center. Meetings generally last about an hour to an hour and a half. Our primary function is to support MDVE staff and students by sponsoring events that strengthen the bond of our school community and to raise funds to support technological and educational needs that are not funded by the District. The PTO is open to all parents and grandparents who have children attending MDVE. There is no fee to join, and everyone is welcome! You can get all the details on our website – mdvepto.com – or “Like” us on Facebook (search for Meadow View Elementary PTO or click on the link from mdvepto.com). Our first meeting of the year will take place on Wednesday, August 14th at 6 p.m. in the library/media center.
PTO sponsors and hosts several events throughout the year, including Donuts with Dad and Muffins with Mom. We also host two large fundraisers each year – our first is the Day of Awesomeness in the fall and another TBA in the spring. We have worked hard to provide fun fundraising opportunities without asking our students to sell anything.
We also have smaller fundraising opportunities throughout the year.
King Soopers Neighborhood Rewards cards (link your King Soopers reward card to Meadowview Elementary PTO in which King Soopers will give back 5% of all purchases to the school)
Box Tops for Education (an ongoing collection with monthly incentives)
Amazon Smile (designate Meadow View Elementary PTO as the beneficiary for your Amazon purchases, and 0.5% of all eligible purchases will benefit the school).
The PTO also hosts several Spirit Nights at local restaurants throughout the year (Dates TBA). These events are meant to be optional ways to meet other MDVE families and support the school at the same time. They are not mandatory, and we encourage you to participate only if you are able.
If you aren’t able to make the monthly meeting(s) but would still like to get involved, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are currently seeking volunteers in several areas – some are one-time events, and others are longer-term commitments. We would be happy to help you find one (or more!) that fits your availability and willingness to participate.
Be sure to check out the “Key Dates to Remember” flyer and post it on your fridge for handy reference.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to either of us or any Meadow View PTO board member with questions or concerns. You can find each board member’s contact information on the reverse side of this letter or in the “Contact Us” section of mdvepto.com.
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Meadow View!

Key Dates to Remember
King Soopers rolls out a new giveback program for nonprofits; no more reloadable gift cards needed!
We have some exciting news for King Soopers shoppers ... reloadable gift cards are no longer required for you to be able to support Meadow View!
Now you can link Meadow View Elementary PTO to your King Soopers Rewards Card. This means ClickList orders will now count in addition to your gas and regular in-store purchases.
To link your King Soopers Rewards Card to Meadow View Elementary PTO, log into your account here. Once logged in, you can search for Meadow View Elementary PTO either by name or “BI826,” and then click “Enroll.”
You must have a registered King Soopers or City Market Rewards card account to link to your organization. New users will need to create an account which requires some basic information, a valid email address and a Rewards card number. If you do not yet have a King Soopers or City Market Rewards card, you can pick one up at the customer service desk at any King Soopers or City Market.
Your PTO thanks you in advance for your support!
Meadow View Elementary PTO is back on AmazonSmile as a charity!
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the eligible charitable organization of your choice.
If you received an email from Amazon telling you that you had 30 days to select another non-profit or saw a similar message when logging in, the PTO is excited to announce that the issue has been resolved, and your AmazonSmile donations will be deposited into the PTO’s account.
If you haven’t already signed up to have your AmazonSmile purchases go to the school, you can register here.
Thank you for your patience!gmail.com
