  • parent teacher organization......basically it's parents and teachers getting together for regular meetings to discuss matters associated with school and the related environment

  • It is what sweetmoonem state it is. My son's building the Pto supplied inside play equipment due to construction, helps pay for field trips, helps with assembly's. However, many of the meetings are during the day. Hopefully yours won't be so you can be a part of it.
