The Jefferson Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) would like to welcome you to our school. For those of you who are unfamiliar with us, we are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. The JES PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents.
The purpose of our organization is to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs; to promote open communication between administration, teachers and parents; and to encourage JES school spirit and pride. The PTO uses its resources, both manpower and monetary, to support all the efforts of the staff of our school.
We are looking forward to meeting families, parents, and grandparents that would like to get involved with our PTO this school year. We encourage you to not only join our organization, but to get involved as well! Everything we do is based on volunteers, and we are always looking for those of you to help make a difference in the lives of our children. Every positive imprint we make on our children can go a long, long way. If you are able to give some time, day or evenings, please join us! Many hands make the job easier.
You can participate and help us make the 2018-2019 a great school year. We will need as many volunteers as possible, and we are flexible enough to work around your schedule. Our group meets approximately once a month to discuss events, plan fundraisers to enhance all programs, and share ideas. This is a wonderful way to find out what is happening at our school from the PTO’s perspective.
We in the PTO believe that it is of the ultimate importance that we do everything we can to enhance the learning environment of our children, as they truly are our future. It will take all of us working together to ensure that this happens.
We look forward to getting to know you!
Your PTO President for the 2018-2019 School Year,
