Parent and PTSO

Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO)

The PTSO is a great way to connect with school and get to know administrators, teachers, and other families in an inclusive and respectful environment. All families are warmly invited to attend our important PTSO meetings, held regularly throughout the year.

To current families: please consider a leadership role with us. The PTSO seeks to recruit candidates who reflect the wonderful diversity of our student body, are creative thinkers, and have fundraising, leadership, and/or organizational experience, either in a volunteering or professional capacity. 

Parents/guardians play a vital role in the life of our school community. We look forward to partnering with you!
