Direct Appeal








General John Nixon Elementary School PTO

September 2019


Welcome to the 2019-20 school year at Nixon! 


Each year brings new experiences, in every grade level and classroom, that our kids will remember for years to come—with field trips, festivals and special assemblies, curriculum crafts, and enrichment programs. Many of these programs aren’t sponsored by the school district, or funded through external sources. Rather, it’s our Nixon PTO that supplies the funds to enhance our Nixon experience. Each year, our operating budget of over $50,000 provides teachers with technology, tools & supplies, and also improves the recreational space for everyone.


While we raise money through various activities and events during the year, our annual Direct Appeal has the power to provide us with funds that can further empower our teachers to create exceptional learning experiences and memories… and to improve and update the space so that kids and families can feel good about the environment at Nixon. Consider the impact both small and large donations can make for our children:


  • Twenty $10 donations provide a Standing Desk for one of our classrooms
  • Twenty $40 donations provide Curriculum Crafts for the school year
  • Twenty $75 donations fund two All-School Assemblies, such as ImprovBoston and Flame the Band
  • Ten $150 donations fund a grade-level Enrichment Program like Simple Machines, Electricity, or Fiction Writing with Mark Peter Hughes


Please support your Nixon PTO today. All donations are confidential and tax-deductible. No amount is too small—or too large! And, there are three easy ways to make your donation:


  1. Visit the PTO website and click Donate on the home page. You can use your PayPal account or credit card. (PayPal offers a recurring monthly donation, which you may prefer to budget your Nixon contribution.)
  2. Drop your donation off at the Front Office bin labeled “Direct Appeal”
  3. Mail your check to: Nixon PTO c/o Treasurer Cristina Enache, 11 Griffin Lane, Sudbury, MA 01776


Thank you so much for your support.  I wish you and your children a truly wonderful school year!


Best Regards,

Angela Danials & Shanna Theriault
