They have put in the hard work this year! 

That's an understatement!

We have several exciting initiatives in the works to help support them, particularly during the big transition coming up on April 5th and end of year celebrations. All donations made here go directly back to the Teachers and Staff you care about. The more you give, the more we can do to support them and show we care!

Thank you to all those who have already donated. 

Just a little boost...

Last week we spoiled our Nixon teachers and staff with tasty circles of sugar and hot liquid stimulant to help them get through their long days!

PTO Open Board Positions

We are looking for dedicated volunteers to fill open positions in our PTO Board starting in June 2021.


Term June 2021- June 2023. The new co-chair will work along side the current co-chair Haley Bush during the 2021-2022 Academic Year, learning how the PTO is run, and then continue for a second year passing on knowledge to the next co-chair. The co-chairs collaborate to produce a strategic plan and budget, coordinate volunteers, communicate with members and partner with building Principals, Teachers and the district Superintendent to facilitate the mission. Estimated time commitment = 1-4 hours per week. 


This volunteer is responsible for collaborating with the executive board, attending PTO meetings and producing meeting minutes. Estimated time commitment = 1-3 hours per month.


Apprentice along side our two current Treasurers to learn the ropes of our non-profit organization. You would not have any direct responsibilities at the start, but would gradually transition into the Treasurer role. Estimated time commitment = 1-2 hours per month.

Please contact Haley & Janelle at if you are interested in any of these roles. We look forward to hearing from you!

Like to be involved but are not sure what role would be a good fit? We have volunteer opportunities for all whether you have 1 hour or 100 hours. Send us an email and we can give you some options!

Acts of Kindness continue...

All Nixon students have been asked to complete three acts of kindness each week during the month of March. Each act is written on a plastic tag and added to the display on the fence surrounding the black top play space. Drive by and check out our growing rainbow!

Great job students! Continue performing your acts of kindness and turning in your tags to your classroom teacher!
