What is PTO? And How Can I Help
Welcome Friends of McQuerry PTO!!!
McQuerry Elementary’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) would like to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. We are very excited to be back and are ready to make this an unforgettable year for all! We hope to have a record number of volunteers to help make this year a success for our children and school.
What is PTO?
PTO is a group of moms, dads, grandparents, teachers, and administrators who care about children and their education. We share our ideas and determine what’s the best plan for our school and our children. Then we put that plan into action. That’s why we need your involvement to make it work!
How can you help?
It doesn’t take a huge time commitment, and you don’t need to be an
officer to make a difference. You can:
- Attend monthly meetings
- Help with classroom parties (donate time or items)
- Volunteer to lead or serve on a committee for one of our annual events
- Sign-up to donate items or volunteer at one of our events
- Follow us on Facebook and share event information
Did you know...?
Studies on parental involvement in schools have shown that students with involved parents earn higher grades and test scores, have better attendance, get more homework done, and graduate at a higher rate. They are more likely to pursue education beyond high school and have more positive attitudes and behaviors.
Please be sure to check our PTO Bulletin Board regularly. You will find a list of upcoming events as well as our next meeting date.
We would love to see you at our next meeting. Let's make this year a huge success for our children and our school!
