  • PTO Holiday Staff Giving

    Do you ever struggle with buying gifts for school staff over the holidays - who to include, what to get, when to send it? The PTO may have a solution for you!  In the past, we have collected monetary donations from Portal families to provide a monetary gift for EVERY staff member at Portal, to include all teachers, paraprofessionals, custodial staff and administration.  This has become a very popular gift among the teachers and staff.  Our goal is to provide a Christmas gift to each staff person and express our thanks to everyone who makes our school so special.  ANY donation is welcome. 

    Donation deadline is Monday, December 18th.
