     Want to Get Involved with PTO? This is what we do!

    We make a difference

    Our goal is to create a school environment where teachers are able to do their best work – and so are the students. We provide support for teachers in and out of the classroom and we try to build the kind of supportive, caring atmosphere that makes school fun for the kids.

    We pledge to honor your time constraints

    We know that your time is precious. Often people are reluctant to join volunteer groups because they are afraid of the time commitment it requires. We meet once a month for an hour. We love to have people help with projects but we won’t push you to commit to more than you want to.

    We have fun!

    Volunteer work shouldn’t be a drag. We accomplish a lot, and not everything we do is easy, but we do our best to have a good time doing it. We value family time and make sure to incorporate our events as such.

    There’s a lot to be done

    These days’ teachers and schools are being asked to do more with less and that’s where we step in. Our help is needed to fill in the gaps.

    We are welcoming

    We are a group of people that have come together for a common cause – our kids. There are no “outsiders” in our group - everyone is welcome – whether it’s your first meeting or your hundredth!

    We are about parent involvement, NOT fundraising

    Our number one goal is to get more parents involved at the school. Raising money is important too, but students will benefit more by having their parents involved than by having more “things”.

     

    THANK YOU FOR THOSE WHO HAVE JOINED US,

    AND WE HOPE THAT WHETHER YOU ARE AN OLD FACE OR A NEW ONE YOU WILL COME OUT AND JOIN US!
