Promoting the Welfare of Children and Youth in Home, School and Community
Who we are?
The Charlton PTO is a group of parents and teachers working to enhance the education of Charlton’s over 1,700 elementary and middle school children (grades PreK-8). The PTO provides opportunities for parents to get involved with their child’s school and meet with other parents to discuss common concerns. The annual PTO membership drive is in September although you may join at any time. Look for the membership form to come home with your student or link on our website!
Over the years, the PTO has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars for curriculum enhancements, enrichment programs, field trips, technology, and more. Without this funding from the PTO, the students would not experience many of these programs, events, field trips, and latest technology.
What we do?
The PTO provides the funds to supplement and to enhance the curriculum of the public elementary and middle schools by funding and providing educational, scientific, health/wellness and cultural services and programs.
The PTO identifies and maintains a database of volunteers. The volunteer coordinators assist in connecting volunteers with opportunities within the schools and for PTO sponsored events and services. Through out the year, the PTO coordinates various family and teacher events to foster community, show support and appreciation to teachers and staff, and raise much needed funds.
PTO fundraisers are conducted to provide the means to advance our students. The financial support and volunteer time provided through PTO efforts will be used in the manner as deemed appropriate by administration, and as approved through general PTO and board meetings. Use of funds will support scholastic, social and technological advancement.
