About Us

Mission Statement

The PTO is an all-volunteer group that has the interest of the entire school body at its heart. We are here to work in tandem with the school administration to support each and every student with the social and academic resources we are able to offer. Our primary focus is every child’s happiness that we feel is fostered through nurturing their personalities, supporting their academic achievement and, of course, providing lots of FUN for them along the way!

The PTO supports: Classroom Teacher Aides; Classroom Field Trips; Classroom Supplies; Teacher Grants; Family Fun Night; Fundraising Events; Halloween Party; Scholastic Book Fairs; PTO Social Events; Community Charity Programs.
