Shade Structure Update
Last year, we kicked off a fundraising bonanza called Penny Wars, and it was a blast! Thanks to all the awesome folks who chipped in, we've got something special brewing on the playground.
Picture this: Ohio's sun, while lovely, can get pretty intense. That's where our shiny new shade structure comes in. It's like the cool, shady hangout spot we all wished for.
Now, here's where you come in. We're still fundraising to make this shade structure the coolest thing ever. Your donations make a big difference. Seriously, every bit counts!
This project shows how our school community comes together to make things happen. Construction is already in full swing, and we're super pumped about the cozy, shaded space it's going to provide.
We'd love for you to be part of this awesome journey by contributing to our fundraising efforts. Big or small, your donation rocks!
Ready to join the fun and help make our playground amazing?

About the Friends of Indianola PTO
Friends of Indianola PTO is a volunteer organization made up of families, teachers and staff of our school. Our mission is to support the education of the children at Indianola Informal K-8 by fostering relationships among the school, parents, and teachers. Through donations and fundraising efforts, we are also able to enhance educational opportunities for our students and provide our school with support for materials and enrichment not otherwise included in the school budget.
In 2021-2022 PTO had expenditures of just over $35,000 and brought in $55,000. This money came from various fundraisers and donations including the Virtual Carnival & Silent Auction, Read-A-Thon, Kroger Community Rewards, Box Tops for Education, Amazon Smile, Facebook Fundraisers, and other funds accumulated over the past few years. In the past the PTO has been able to provide Chromebooks for multiple grade levels, chess club for grades 2-8, OSU theater performances, drums for Elementary Music, field trips, and teacher appreciation activities, to name just a few.
Indianola Informal has a rich history dating back to 1975 with the opening of a new school dedicated to informal education. Check out the video below to learn more about the history of our school.
