The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a partnership between parents and educators who strive to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of the students within the school. It is also a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice their opinions about what is happening in their school. PTO is an integral part of the school and we welcome your involvement.  Everyone -- parents, grandparents, educators, students and other citizens active in this community -- is invited to join our not-for-profit organization.
