Parent Teacher Organization - PTO

 

One of the most important components of a good school is the partnership between the school and parents who work together for the best interest of children. The close partnership between home and school is one of the exceptional strengths at St. Thomas More Catholic School. We have a strong tradition of supportive and hard-working parents. Throughout the year parents have the opportunity to develop that partnership in a wide variety of ways. Parents join the PTO, volunteer in the classroom, help during fundraisers, attend School Advisory Council meetings, read to their children each night, and help in many other ways. It is important to your child that you are involved in some way at school. It’s a way to let your child know you think his or her school is important.
