Please make sure to indicate your child's name in the email, as document name or in the comments.   

One School One Book 
Please remember that completed One School One Book Bingo cards may be turned into the PTO mailbox or to your child's teacher.  Families that turn in a completed card will be entered in a raffle for some fun reading prizes!  If you misplaced your Bingo card you can download a copy from the PTO website - go to the "PTO Documents for Parents" tab.  Cards are due November 30th.   

Hot Lunch
December Lunches - Orders due November 24th  

We are not able to accommodate any late orders so please be sure to order by the deadline.  If you need help with the order process please contact Stacy Nelson at
We have added an "Easy Order" option for families that want to order hot lunches by the month.  Easy order allows you to order a month of hot lunches (same size meals) by clicking one link - pricing includes all hot lunches for that month.  If you are ordering for multiple children you will need to complete an Easy Order for each child. Please look for  "Easy Order" in the lunch title on Rev Trak. We will continue to offer individual hot lunch orders for those families that want to select only certain meals. If you complete an Easy Order for your child you should NOT order individual lunches as you will be double ordering.

All orders must be placed through Rev Trak by clicking hereOnce on the home page, please click "Hot Lunch" on the left side of your screen to begin your order.  All lunches must be pre-ordered. 

Please save your receipt so that you know which dates you ordered lunches.  Our vendors do not provide extra lunches beyond what we order so we are not able to accommodate children who do not have a hot lunch order and do not bring a lunch.  When in doubt please send a lunch to ensure your child has a meal.

If you cannot use Rev Trak or need to pay with cash please contact Angela Margaris at angela2dk@aol.com for assistance.  Please do not place cash or checks for hot lunch in the PTO mailbox as your payment will not be received.


Carpenter School's PTO is organized for the purpose of supporting the education of the children at Carpenter School by fostering relationships among the school, parents and teachers.

The PTO sponsors assistance to teachers in classroom settings, holds fund-raisers for supplemental educational materials and experiences, supports school and family social interaction, and provides a non-biased forum for sharing information on issues that impact our children.


Our goal is to complement the school curriculum with additional opportunities for parents, teachers and students to learn, socialize, communicate and grow. It is our belief that the team effort of a parent teacher organization offers the best possible learning environment for our children.
