About the PTO
ASSEMBLIES – Throughout the year, the PTO provides a variety of fun, educational assemblies and programs for our students. Assemblies are chosen with input from the building principals, guidance department and teachers. The assemblies help to reinforce what the students are learning in the classroom in a fun and entertaining way.
CLOTHING FOR EMERGENCIES – Each year the PTO purchases sweatpants, socks and underwear for each of our school nurses to be used in case of emergencies throughout the year.
CAP PROGRAM – Every year the PTO funds the Child Assault Program which is presented to different grades each year.
FAMILY FUN NIGHTS – Throughout the year, the PTO will sponsor a fun family nights for you to enjoy with your children. These will include themed-craft nights, movies and game nights. These are parent/child events.

ROOM PARENT COORDINATORS – Room parent coordinators arrange holiday parties and activities in cooperation with the teachers. The room parent coordinators are expected to involve all the classroom parents in some way during the year’s activities. In addition to being members of the PTO, the room parents are asked to assist the PTO in their various fundraising efforts. Room parent coordinators also support the collection of Box Tops and assist the administrative staff during high-traffic days.
SECOND GRADE SWING – The PTO sponsors a dance activity for our second grade students in the Spring. This is a child/one parent activity.
