A local organization of teachers and parents who work together to improve schools and to help students.
The executive board voted to leave the PTA governing body after one year due to lack of receiving vital documents and support from the PTA Organization. We became a PTO to avoid paying high fees to be national PTA members and chose to keep funds in our school.
Strong schools attract families and businesses boosting the local economy and attracting families that value quality education.
We work to provide additional resources and technologies to give our students exciting opportunities.
Families build better relationships with other families in their community, building neighborhood cohesion and trust.
Being a part of our PTO makes you a part of a community that cares about the success of our students and making a difference in our community.
When students attend a school near their home, families can more easily connect with teachers and contribute as school volunteers and leaders.
Our PTO encourages the surrounding neighborhoods, families, and businesses to become involved in the success of our school and our students.
Studies have shown that parent involvement in their children’s education has been proven to yield higher grades and test scores, enroll in higher-level programs, pass their classes and earn credits, attend school regularly and have better social skills among many other benefits.
As an executive board we have been pivoting through COVID restrictions in our fundraising efforts as well as ability to reach out to the community and families to get involved. You can be involved volunteering as little or as much as you would like. We appreciate any efforts made toward the success of our organization.
We have general meetings one time a month. Join us via zoom!
The PTO is a responsible steward of donated dollars and aims to enrich the education as well as comfort and safety of our students.
