RUSSELLVILLE, Mo. -

Sunday, Russellville's Parent-Teacher Organization hosted a pancake breakfast to raise money for new locks, doors and entryway with a buzz-in system.

The middle and elementary school have been improving school safety since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, but looking to do more. 

The PTO hopes to raise $4,000 for the needed renovations. 

Last year, it raised more than $3,000, using the money to donate books to the library. 

School officials say student and teacher safety is at the top of their priority list and the renovations will help that. 

Parents of students at the school agree. 

Parent and PTO President Sarah Olgischleager stressed the important of the new entryway with the buzz-in system. 

Her daughter is in kindergarten, which is the first classroom as you enter the school. 

The pancake breakfast with silent auction is the biggest fundraising event the PTO hosts.
