What exactly is PTO? PTO stands for Parent Teacher Organization. As parents and guardians and staff, we are all members. There is no membership fee or required commitment. There are many ways that someone might participate as a PTO member. For example: attend events, volunteer in the classroom, teach monthly art lessons, fundraise, or attend monthly meetings. There is no right way, just your way.
