Parent involvement is an essential part of our program. The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) organizes an ice cream social in September, a Wellness Week in the fall, a Read-A-Thon in the winter, and a Carnival in the spring, as well as other activities throughout the year. The PTO provides financial support for students in many ways – for example, the PTO has purchased academic and supplementary educational materials, regularly paid for buses for field trips, and sponsored artist and author visits. The PTO hosts monthly general business meetings and arranges meetings on topics of interest and importance to parents.
