Drive-In Movie & Canned Goods Fundraiser:

Canned Food Drive: Monday, Nov 9th - Friday, Nov 13th

Drive-In Movie Night:  Friday, Nov 13th at 7:45 pm! 



In lieu of our annual Thanksgiving lunch, our kids this year will get a chance to show thanks in a new way! This year we’re giving back to our community with a canned food drive! We’ll make it fun by hosting a week-long grade by grade competition to see which grade can bring in the most canned food, competing for a to-be-determined prize that is accessible for both online and in-person students and is safe for all.

At the end of the week, we’ll celebrate as an entire school at a drive-in movie! Redfield PTO will be paying for everyone’s tickets to the drive-in movie, and we just ask that you participate by donating canned goods either during the week or the night of the drive-in movie (we will be collecting canned food there as well).

Our canned food drive will run from Monday 11/9 through Friday 11/13, and cans will be collected for the in-person students in your classrooms and for online students we will be setting up a drive-thru during the week where you can drop off cans (more details to come).
Our drive-in movie will be Friday 11/13 at 7:45pm. Location, movie, and sign up details will be sent out as we get closer to the event so check back often or keep an eye on the morning announcement emails!

Penguin Patch:


When:   Monday November 16th through Tuesday November 24th
ALL ONLINE!!! 
We will be hosting our annual Penguin Patch fundraiser 100% online this year! This is a great event where your children can feel proud in taking ownership of holiday gift giving and buy family members and friends small gifts from the Penguin Patch. Since we will be 100% online this year, gifts will be purchased online and then shipped directly to your home with the gifts addressed to your child, including bags to wrap gifts in that are friendly for your kids to do themselves. Boxes will also be clearly labeled to prevent you from ruining any surprises!


To ensure your kiddos are able to purchase gifts and have them shipped to you in time, we will be starting a little earlier this year and hosting our fundraiser from Monday November 16th through Tuesday November 24th. Shipping is free for all orders over $20 and for orders under $20, shipping is a flat rate under $5.

We will be providing our school’s special shopping link as we get closer to our shopping window so please check back often for updates or look for it in the announcements!

New Redfield PTO Board Members:
Welcome Caitlin Erickson
(VP of Events)



I’m the mom of two boys, Cole and Doug. Cole is a 2nd grader in CGP and is currently in Mrs. Graham’s classroom and Doug is just two years old and goes to daycare. During the workday, I manage a marketing team, and work closely with our events team when we’re hosting live events. I also volunteer to be our National Lead for our parents’ employee resource group at work where we plan events and provide resources that are helpful for our families and fun for the kids, so I’m excited to put my experience to use for events with Redfield Elementary! Outside of work, my husband, my boys and I like to spend our spare time in Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona splashing in the creek or exploring the red rocks any chance we get!

Welcome Jay Stafford
(Vice President)


I am retired from the Navy and just started the next chapter of my life as an appraiser. I have 3 daughters, one in Kindergarten, and the other 2 away in college. In my spare time, I try to spend it outside with the family. It's too easy to get sucked into watching a screen all day and am trying to show my children there is a whole other world just outside your front door. I am an avid reader - I have tried e-readers, but still feel nothing is better than having the physical book in my hands.

OPEN POSITIONS:
The Redfield PTO Team has an opening for a Treasurer position.  If you are interested, please contact Kris Galliart at:  krisgalliart@gmail.com
