The PTO is our school's Parent Teacher Organization. Every parent/guardian and staff member is automatically a member of the PTO. By being active in the PTO, you have the opportunity to support and enhance the education of your child as well as others in our school. It is amazing to see what we can do as a community! Do you enjoy the Fall Fun Fest? Family nights? Field Day? Did you know our fundraising efforts pay for these events as well as iPad Mini Labs, educational software used through all grade levels, PE equipment, art supplies, library books, and music instruments?

We need officers for next year's Board.

Our PTO cannot function without a board. We are at risk of dissolving the PTO, losing our status as a non-profit charity, and having long term projects such as the playground, stall.
