Newtown Elementary PTO (Newtown, PA)
The purpose of the PTO is to support the education of children at Newtown Elementary by fostering relationships among the school, parents and teachers. The PTO is responsible for funding and working many school events and projects throughout the year. Funds raised by the PTO during the school year go directly back into our school!
We encourage all families to be active members in the PTO! Donating as little as 2 hours of time per family will help share the work load and allow us to accomplish so much more..

2015-16 CR Volunteer Clearances Protocols (Message from Dr. Fraser):
Last week, the Governor's office made changes to the fees associated with two of the three background checks for volunteers. Effective July 25, 2015, the cost for VOLUNTEER background checks at the state level (PA Child Abuse Report and PA State Criminal Report) will be waived. The third background check, the Federal Criminal Report (FBI Fingerprinting), will remain in effect in accordance with the previously published guidelines and costs. Council Rock expects to have the equipment to complete the fingerprinting required for the FBI check before the end of summer. For volunteers that have lived in Pennsylvania for ten (10) years or more, Pennsylvania will allow a waiver of this FBI fingerprinting with a signed CR Volunteer Disclosure Form.
The three clearance forms can be found at these links:
*Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 151) : click here (no charge)
*Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check (Act 34): click here (no charge)
*FBI Federal Criminal History Record (Act 114) Only if a volunteer has lived outside of the Commonwealth of PA in the last 10 years : Visit this LINK for information and locations of fingerprint sites.
The Council Rock Volunteer Disclosure Form can be found at this LINK.
Detailed information on volunteer clearances can be found at this LINK.
Council Rock understands that many volunteers have already obtained the PA Child Abuse and the PA State Criminal Report at cost. We apologize to those who have incurred this cost to seek clearances. The Governor's actions and the legislative effort to change some of the requirement in the new Child Protective Services Act combine to address some of the issues of ambiguity and concern expressed by school districts and community members. As always, Council Rock appreciates your willingness to volunteer to help our schools and students.
