The Holy Cross Elementary School PTO would like to welcome you to join us in making this school year both enjoyable and exciting for our students, teachers, and parents! The purpose of our organization is to aid and foster the students and staff by providing support for education and recreational needs, to promote open communication between administration, teachers, and parents, and to encourage school spirit & pride.
For the PTO to be effective and fully representative of the school, it is essential to have parental involvement from as many parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins as possible. Many working parents feel that they cannot be included in the PTO because they cannot come to every meeting or be available to volunteer at school during the day, however, that is far from the truth! There are endless possibilities in ways you can help. Whatever your own level of flexibility, Holy Cross Elementary PTO always appreciates their parent volunteers, as does our teachers and staff. Keep in mind that by volunteering, you will get to enjoy interacting with the children, become friends with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference.
The 2016 – 2017 PTO and Board officers are as follows:
Tricia Thomas (email@example.com)
Emily Crail (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Mary Ellen Matts (email@example.com)
Kim Amlung (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Elizabeth Rudd (email@example.com)
Please contact us with any questions, concerns or suggestions. We are looking forward to meeting families, parents, and grandparents that would like to get involved with our PTO this school year. 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. If you are able to give some time, day or evenings, please join us! We are looking forward to a fun and successful school year!
