What is PTO?
parent teacher organizationPTO stands for Parent-Teacher Organization. The PTO consists of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students at East Jones Elementary School. We support school staff, help promote student self-esteem, and assist efforts to solve school needs through volunteers and funding. All parents of East Jones students are encouraged to participate in PTO activities whenever possible, even if you are unable to attend our meetings. PTO activities happen every day at EJE with the parents who volunteer in and out of school. Helping out in the classroom, volunteering in the library, preparing a special treat for staff appreciation, chairing a PTO committee, or assisting at a PTO event are all examples of PTO activities and involvement.PTO has several scheduled family and fundraising events that are planned and facilitated by committee assignments and through our monthly meetings. Check out the list of events in this flyer. Signing up to help does not commit you to come to a PTO meeting! The heart of the PTO is the everyday working relationships between parents and staff. The effort parents, teachers, staff, and volunteers put forth on a daily basis at EJE is extraordinary. On behalf of the PTO, we'd like to say thank you to each parent, teacher, staff member and volunteer who works so hard all year long to make our school a safe and educationally enriched environment for kids! A list of our PTO meetings is listed below. At our meetings we plan for upcoming events, discuss fundraising activities, allocate funding, and learn about school, district, and community events that pertain to our children. We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming meetings!
