8 Reasons to Get Involved with PTO

August 16, 2014

1. Your Child Benefits
When parents get connected to the school, children do better. Research shows children whose parents are involved get better grades, and have fewer discipline problems at school. Your child also benefits from the enrichment programs we support and the technology we purchase for the classrooms.

2. We Make a Difference
We provide support for teachers in and out of the classroom. We provide resources they need. We help create learning opportunities for children. We try to build the kind of supportive, caring atmosphere that makes school fun.

3. We Pledge to Honor Your Time Constraints
People are often reluctant to participate because they are afraid of how much time they will be expected to commit. Just a couple of hours can make a big difference. We won’t push you to commit more time than you want or are able to.

4. We Share Your Concerns
We all have a common bond, creating the best possible educational experience for our children.

5. There’s A Lot To Be Done
These days our schools are asked to do a lot more with less. Our help is essential to filling the gaps.

6. We’re Welcoming
To us, there are not “outsiders”. We have come together to work toward common goals. We want to hear your ideas and feedback.

7. Parents Involvement is Paramount
We do have fundraising to do, however our main goal is to get parents involved. Parent involvement creates a great school and improves student performance.

8. End of Year Volunteer Appreciate Party
The PTO would like to thank ALL volunteers with an end-of-year appreciation party.

Sign up at the PTO table on Registration Day.
Thank you for your support!
