Meeting Information

The PTO monthly general meetings are where the business of PTO gets done. It is the forum where WE as parents and guardians get to have our voices heard.  The meetings are a great way to learn about new and ongoing initiatives, hear from the school teachers and administrators, ask questions, contribute ideas, and have direct impact on PTO decisions. The meetings take place 3rd or 4th Thursday of each month at 6:15pm. MEETINGS ARE OPEN TO ALL PARENTS AND GUARDIANS, and everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.
