COMING SOON!

NEW!  Polar Parent Prep Team 

Our Frost teachers work tirelessly to educate our children.  The last thing we want them doing is standing in front of a copy machine when they could be planning, researching, preparing, and collaborating to support each and every one of our amazing kids!  This year, we would like to develop a plan that can eliminate some of the copy, cut, laminate, fold and staple time that eats up the valuable planning hours for many.

Join us at the PTO meeting Tuesday, November 5th at 6:30pm to learn more about how you can turn an hour of volunteer time into the wonderful gift of time for a Frost Teacher.  Earn bonus points for your child’s participation relay!  Win-win!

Stay tuned for more details here!

Member meetings will generally be held every-other month on the first Tuesday at 6:30 pm at Robert Frost School. All parents of Frost students are welcome. Childcare will be available.

Shoparoo

This year we are excited to be partnering with a fun, free, and truly easy fundraiser called Shoparoo! Schools nationwide are already earning hundreds and even thousands every year through Shoparoo and it’s a great opportunity for us to really make a difference this year!

Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy: the free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school! Just shop, snap, earn!

Get started today:

  1. Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
  2. Select our school from the list (Be sure to select the Robert Frost in Mount Prospect on Cypress) and start taking pictures of your receipts — shop anywhere, buy anything!
  3. You can even select a grade to support and have fun with grade competitions!

Big Win at the Bake Sale!

Thank you to all those that donated, worked, or bought goodies at our October Bake Sale.  PTO was able to raise over $600 to help keep field trip costs low and support other programs and initiatives.  It was really a huge success!

We loved spending the evening with so many Frost Families!

The imagine relay participation board was updated.  Lots of classrooms had attendance last night.
