PTO

Welcome!

Our PTO is a great organization that gives guidance to our school. The focus is to support the efforts of our staff, and enhance the educational experience of our students. It is a positive and efficient group that really makes a difference at Awbrey Park. We meet once a month, usually the first Monday of the month*. Our meeting time is typically one hour. The PTO works with the school to put on many great events and makes Awbrey Park a fun place to be. Stop by their table at Open House or the Hot Dogs and Hot Rods to fill out a Volunteer Interest Form.

*The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) meets on the 1st Monday of every month at 6:00pm in the library. These meeting serve as an overview of current activities. Committee meetings based on activities meet outside of these monthly meetings.

Mission

It is our mission to unite staff, students and parents, and to encourage community involvement to further enhance the educational development (physical, mental, and social) of children at Awbrey Park Elementary School. The PTO will achieve this goal by encouraging parent participation in the classroom, activities, teacher support and fundraising programs.

Why help with the PTO?

We want to support our students and school through community building, fundraising activities and classroom support. It is essential to have our own families build our school community.

How can you help with the PTO?

Any parent of an Awbrey Park student is welcome to participate with the PTO. There are many activities throughout the year, so putting your time where you want is our priority. Time commitment can vary per activity and is flexible. Share your insights, suggestions, time and energy in supporting and generating high quality programs and activities for all Awbrey Park Elementary students. Join us at our monthly overview meeting or contact a current PTO member to get involved with us.
