Halloween Pumpkin

2020 Drive-Thru Fall Fest!

In an effort to connect with students and families of the Canal Winchester Local School district, the PTO is hosting a socially distant and healthy event that will allow families to venture out into the community and celebrate fall together.


Classroom Grants

Classroom Grants are how we directly impact and help the teachers in Canal Winchester. Teachers can apply for a Classroom Grant from the PTO and receive $100 to purchase needed supplies, new seating, or anything their teaching heart desires to better their classrooms and help their students.

Spirit Wear Sales

Everyone loves to show their school pride! We use our Spirit Wear Sales to raise money to fund our Classroom Grant Program. Offered in the Fall and Spring, we offer a variety of shirts, tank tops, and sweatshirts. With 100% of the proceeds benefitting teachers in CW, please consider buying from the PTO when purchasing your school gear! 

Our Fall Spirit Wear Sale has ended, but don't despair! We will have Spirit Wear available at all of our events as well as another sale in the Spring! 

Homework Help Incentive Program

New for the 2019-2020 school year, the PTO is working with the Columbus Public Library and their Homework Help Center to incentivize students in taking advantage of this free program that is available to all students. The Homework Help Center is open Monday through Friday and is open to students K to 12th Grade. 

Look for more information on this new partnership coming soon!

Staff & Teacher Appreciation

Throughout the year, the PTO finds ways to thank the staff and teachers who are pouring into the students of Canal Winchester.

Whether it be a team building program, a conference night dinner, a catered lunch, a hospitality cart, or fun food trucks, we work to find ways to say "thank you" to the people impacting kids each and every day.

Family Literacy Night & STEM Night

The PTO loves partnering with ITES and WTES for these FREE family fun nights. Each geared towards different things, the PTO proudly helps with the pizza for the evening. We also have our Spirit Wear sales available at both events.

Kids Night In

Held twice a year, this fundraiser raises money for our Homework Help Incentive Program. Parents get a night "off" and students get the fun of playing "after hours" at school, all while helping to fund a great program! It really is a win, win, WIN! This year's dates are November 15th and February 7th.

Registration for the November 15th event coming soon!

Holiday Shop

This fun event allows the students of Canal Winchester to play "Santa" for their families. Classrooms come down to the CW Holiday Shop and purchase gifts for the people on their shopping list! This fundraiser helps to support Teacher and Staff Appreciation throughout the year.

Quite possibly the students favorite day of the year, Annual Field Days are something the whole school looks forward to. The PTO is proud to be able to help fund these amazing days where smiles can be seen around the entire school!
