PTSO
The Parent Teacher Student Organization
"Working Together to Build a Better School Community"

What is the PTSO?

The PTSO is a Parent/Teacher/Student driven committee that provides an opportunity to come together to discuss issues, concerns, and ideas which will allow us together to enhance our students' educational experience.

What is the PTSO Mission?

The mission and purpose of our Parent/Teacher/Student Organization is to support and enrich educational opportunities for students at our school. The relationships within the school community, which includes students, families, and staff, are a vital influence on the success of our children's futures at school.
