Working Together Handbook
Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
The PTO includes parents of early childhood, lower school, and middle school students. Its volunteers help families connect to the school and each other via friend-raising, fundraising, phone banking, and outreach.
All parents are kindly requested to dedicate 25 hours of time to the school each year, which can involve classroom assistance, field trip or onsite chaperoning, or administrative tasks. Keep an eye out for volunteer opportunities from the administration and classroom teachers throughout the year. Volunteer hours can be fulfilled by extended family. Failure to donate time incurs a $600 fee at the end of the year.
