Volunteer Appreciation

The PTO would like to give a BIG THANK YOU to all you volunteers who make our school events and activities possible. There is no way to do the things that we do without each and every one of you! We’d also like to take this time to recognize some special volunteers for the 2016-17 school year:

  1. Deane Hartberg ~ 168 hours so far!

EVERY VOLUNTEER FOR THE 2016-17 SCHOOL YEAR HAS A CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION WAITING FOR THEM AT THE SCHOOL OFFICE. All this week there will be treats at the volunteer sign-in area. Additionally, the top hours volunteers will receive a small gift from the PTO for their hours of service.


During the 2015-2016 school year Ardenwald Elementary School volunteers contributed 4,524 volunteer hours.

That’s an average of 453 hours per month, wow!!

We are looking forward to seeing all of you this 2016-17 school year.

You all make a great difference!
