Welcome to the Loring PTO!
When your family joins the Loring School community, you become a part of the Loring PTO; a community of parents, teachers and school administrators joining together to enrich the educational and social experience of our students.
Parent involvement is critical to our success and there are a number of ways to get involved. If you are interested in learning more about the different opportunities available please email our co-chairs Crystal Pike and Anne Devine.
A Grand Success! Fun Run 2023
6/8/2023 12:20 pm
Wow Loring! We are astounded by the participation from students and families and the generous donations by friends and families. Despite the less than ideal weather, the kids had a blast and ran their hearts out. We crushed both our goals!
We aimed to get 70% of our students registered and ended up getting 77% registered!! This is a record and we are excited that the students and staff will celebrate by soaking Mrs. Harvey and Mr. Gaita with water balloons next week!
We also aimed to raise $15,000 to makeover our Courtyard to make it accessible outdoor learning and snack space as well as support creative enrichment for all grades. We raised over $18,000 after accounting for costs! The Fun Run is the PTO's biggest fundraiser and we are so grateful that the community consistently brings it for this event!
Thank you again to all of you and the Loring staff for creating a buzz and taking the students through the Character Traits for a Legendary Life. This event would not have been possible without our Fun Run Committee. Thank you to Kirstin Garabedian, Steve Paddock, Lauren Papa, Renee Crescenzi, and Kelly Landberg. These 5 pawsome volunteers jumped around at car drop off to generate buzz, lined up the food trucks, designed the pawsome t-shirts, sorted and distributed prizes, and more!Read More
Last Food Pantry TOMORROW!
6/8/2023 12:18 pm
Our last food drive is TOMORROW, Friday, June 9th and the theme for this month is Summer Fun, so come dressed for sunny, warm skies (even if that is only in our imaginations!). Please no bathing suits!
The Sudbury Food Pantry relies heavily on our school drive collections and without us over the summer, the shelves get pretty bare. Let’s do what we can to fill it up before we all start summer vacation!
Donations can be dropped off in 2 ways:
1) Send donations with your student to school TOMORROW June 9th and they can leave it by their normal building entrance.
2) Drop it off at your convenience at one of the neighborhood drop boxes, anytime today! Boxes will be at 25 Singletary Ln, 24 Pokonoket Ave 26 Lafayette Dr (new west side box!) and 195 Woodside Rd. All donations will be brought to school in time to be sorted!
Please reach out to Heather Larson at email@example.com with any questions

Loring Lego Club
6/7/2023 1:04 pm
Please see below for a note from the outgoing Lego Club Coordinator:
Hello rising 4th and 5th grade parents!
I am looking for one or two parents that could take over the Lego Engineering Club.
The Lego Club is a parent-run student club for 4th and 5th graders that are interested in robotics, using Legos to build a rudimentary robot that can complete simple tasks. The kids prepare for a state-wide competition in December each year, held by FIRST Lego League. It's a lot of fun and it's so rewarding to see the kids go through the problem solving process!
Please reach out to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are at all interested and I can give you more details. I would like to pass the baton soon so that planning can start over the summer. I will be available over the summer to help get the next set of parents started.
Thanks for considering!

What an Enriched Year! Thank You to Our CE Coordinators!
6/7/2023 12:21 pm
Wow! What an amazing line up of creative enrichment opportunities the PTO was able to bring to classrooms this year! These hands on, experiential learning moments are so special for the students and it is always so rewarding to see and hear about how much they enjoyed these programs.
Kindergarten: Solids & Liquids, Force & Motion, Habitats & Homes
First Grade: Discovery Museum Sound Workshop, Talewise Character Show, Valerie Tutson's Tales from Africa
Second Grade: Giles LaRoche, Trickster Tales, Animal Ecology, Physical Changes of Matter
Third Grade: Poetry in Motion, Plimoth Plantation, Owls up Close, Force and Magnetism
Fourth Grade: Sound Waves, Geography Gameshow
Fifth Grade: StarLab, Chemistry Lab, Two Worlds Meet
Plus two fabulous school-wide programs!
Bringing these programs to the school would not be possible without the generous financial support from all of you and the effort of our CE coordinators who dedicate their time to work with the teachers to research and book the programs, and help assist with logistics the day of the program. A huge thank you to Dana Roth (K&2nd), Crystal Pike (1st), Anne Devine (overall coordination and schoolwide), Rachel Heckler (3rd), Maite Garcia (4th), and Erin Ciaccia (5th).
We are looking for help with CE next year. This is a flexible volunteer opportunity that does not require a ton of time but has a huge impact. Please reach out to email@example.com if you are able to help out.Read More
