• Nyssa Elementary’s Parent-Teacher Organization has some fundraisers in the works. The first, which began Feb. 21 and runs through March 6, is the Little Caesars® Pizza Kit Fundraiser. Students have order forms but if you don’t know an elementary student contact the PTO at [email protected] for instructions on how to make your own online order.

This fundraiser helps the PTO fund school field trips, supplies, playground equipment and other activities like providing lunch for the teachers during parent-teacher conferences.

Another fundraiser coming up in April is the Drive for School Spirit, featuring Paw & “N” paintings.
