Reasons why to join the PTO…

  1. Research has shown that students perform better in school when their parents are involved.
  2. You become part of a network of parents and teachers, which leads to better communication with your child’s teachers, principal, etc.
  3. PTO assists in creating a supportive and encouraging school environment.
  4. It is a great connection with the school. You will be the first to hear about upcoming school changes or decisions.
  5. You are a role model for your child and their friends. By helping with the PTO, you are showing that you value education.
  6. It is flexible…volunteer as much or as little as you can. 
  7. You can make a difference by sharing your skills.
  8. It is fun and you get to meet other parents.


Ways to Help PTO

  2. Attend a meeting or two or more. It is not a requirement to attend any meetings, if you become a member.

To add your child as a participant, please follow these 3 easy steps:

  1. Go to this link -
  2. Enter your child’s name, enter your email(s), and select the group your child belongs to.
  3. Click “Add” > this will take you to your newly created pledge page!

All you have to do is make a donation for whatever amount you can, and share your child’s pledge page link with friends and family. We are shooting for 100% participation so no amount is too small.
