A parent teacher organization (PTO) gives parents and teachers the opportunity to work together to supplement and enrich the educational experience. And with today’s tight budgets, a strong, well-functioning PTO can be a teacher’s most important ally when it comes to achieving curricular and fundraising goals.

As parent leaders, your responsibility and your part of contributing to a wonderful school life experience is rewarding but more importantly, helpful to the students of your school.
