The Saint Mary's Catholic School Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) serves to foster unity and support for families within the school. The members work closely with the Principal and faculty, serving as a channel for communication between home and school. This organization sponsors fundraising activities for the benefit of the school and for student field trips, provides volunteer services, and promotes the school to the general public. All parents/guardians are encouraged to participate in Parent-Teacher Organization projects.
Each year, the PTO raises more than $10,000 in order to fund several events at the school, including:
- Teacher grants
- Fall Festival
- Catholic Schools Week activities
- Science Day
- Class trips
- Class parties
- ....and more!
The PTO also hosts the start-of-year Open House, designs and sells school Spirit Wear, contributes to our annual Gala and the St Mary's Classic golf tournament, helps organize the network of homeroom parents and school volunteers, coordinates parent social events, and purchases appreciation gifts for the faculty and staff (Birthday, Christmas, Appreciation Day, and end-of-year).
The PTO strives to strengthen the Saint Mary's school community. In order to be successful, all school parents/guardians are encouraged to share their ideas and opinions throughout the year.
