Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

When you are involved in your child's school, you are involved in your child's life. Children with parents involved in their school have higher attendance, higher self-esteem AND get better grades!

It is through PTO fundraising that we are able to provide food for events such as the 6th grade orientation, teacher in service luncheon, 8th grade final fling, the year-end picnic/BBQ and graduation. We are able to provide entertainment such as DJs for the dances/parties and fund inspirational speakers as well as help provide bussing for trips. And each year the out going 8th grade class makes a donation to the school for future classes. We can thank last year’s 8th graders for the new 3D printers and art scanners as well as the supplies to keep them going.

If you are not already a member, you can find PTO membership applications right here online. You can submit your completed form and donation in an envelope addressed to SCCST PTO to the main office via your child, in person or mailed to 385 North Church Road, Sparta, NJ 07871.

Please consider being a more active member while your child is here at the Charter School - we'd love to have you participate!

Ongoing PTO Fundraising Events

  1. AmazonSmile
    AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. You’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to SCCST. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for donation” on their product detail pages.

    To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.

    On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you need to select SCCST PTO to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. AmazonSmile will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at will result in a donation.

    The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges.

  2. Shop with Scrip Gift Cards
    Shopping with Scrip is fundraising while you shop. All you have to do is buy gift cards through SCCST Scrip program. You pay the full face value for the gift card, and you’ll earn the school an immediate rebate that's typically between 3% and 15% depending on the retailer. Then you use that gift card like any other gift card.

    Order and pay for gift cards that you can use on everyday shopping such as groceries, gas, clothes and restaurants as well as gift-giving.

    There are over 700 retailers to choose from, so you can use Scrip Gift Cards on practically every purchase!
