Montessori Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)



We have a PTO table to the left as soon as you enter the front door. Throughout the year, information about PTO events/meetings can be found here. Montessori has an active PTO and we hope you join us by volunteering and coming to the meetings. It is a great way to be involved with your child’s school and to meet new people!

What does PTO do?

PTO hosts a series of events that provide fun activities for our families as well as fundraising events to support our school and our wonderful teachers. Listed below are a few of our events. More information will be available as each event nears.

  • We raise funds to provide support to the school and its wonderful teachers and try to have as much fun as possible with those fundraisers!
  • We host a beginning of the year picnic (held in August) to give families a chance to get to know each other.
  • We host a costume party on a Saturday in October.
  • We help keep maintenance costs down by organizing a fall and spring outdoor clean up day.
  • We host three PTO meetings a year. Each meeting has its own topic. We provide babysitting at those meetings so everyone has the opportunity to attend.
