Holt Parent Group (PTO)

Welcome to the Holt Parent Group (PTO) page! We are in the process of rebuilding the group and our volunteer opportunities within the school while continuously seeking additional support from parents, families, and the community to fulfill our volunteer needs.

What we do:
1. Provide funding for various school events
2. Recruit volunteers for school-wide events
3. Arrange and attend school-wide events (including fundraisers)

**Please note that a lot of our volunteering opportunities happen during school hours and do require all our volunteers to have clearance through the 4J School District’s Volunteer Background Check. If you are unsure about your clearance, please check with the front office.

If you are interested in being a part of the Holt Parent Group Board or have a special interest in volunteering for a specific event, please let us know by filling out the survey below. We utilize the website/app SignUpGenius for all our volunteer opportunities. There are a number of activities that we do ask for other help in providing food or supplies for various activities.

*Note: By filling out this survey and marking areas of interest, it does not commit you to those activities. We will have an official volunteer sign-up list sent out prior to the activities.

Can’t Volunteer?
There are a number of activities that we do ask for other kinds of help than volunteering. Here are a few of the events for which we have asked for donations:

1. Costume Bingo Night – Allergy-Friendly Halloween Candy
2. Parent/Teacher Conferences – Prepared food for the staff buffet
3. Spring Carnival – Cupcakes for cakewalk
4. Staff Appreciation Week – Themed food items (Breakfast, dessert, buffet)
5. State Testing – Chewing Gum


We focus our efforts on one event instead of many small events, to avoid fundraiser fatigue.  Our main fundraiser is the Holt Bolt (Jog-A-Thon), being held SPRING 2024.  We typically raise around $25,000 each year which is the bulk of our $35,000-$45,000 annual budget.

Other ways we earn funds:
1. “Holt Night Out” at local restaurants – % of purchase goes back to the school
2. School Cents program – turn in receipts from money spent at Valley River Center from October to January
3. Bottle Drive – only hosted 1-2 x a year
4. Kona Ice – funds earned go directly back to the school
