Alone we can do so little;
together we can do so much.
-HELEN KELLER

You can make a difference in your child's school!

The PTO is comprised of parents and guardians just like you! We are full-time working parents, stay-at-home caregivers, 3rd shift workers, and everything in between. One thing we are not? Cliquey! We are a fun, no-pressure group that shares a common goal: to enrich and support our students' school experiences with fundraising and fun community events. Volunteer a lot, a little, or simply attend an event... it's all good!  

PTO's Annual Events + Volunteer Opportunities

We'd love to see you there!

Boosterthon Fun Run Event

Staff Appreciation Luncheon Events

Parent/Guardian

Event Committee

Year-Long

Don't get us wrong, we all love our children but sometimes adults need a break and an opportunity to get out sans-kiddos. Hire a babysitter, skip out for a few hours, and meet other parents and caregivers. It's okay to enjoy a night out once in a while!
