HOW TO GET
We would love to have you join our Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO) and hear your suggestions and have your assistance with planning and executing events for our students. PTO is an excellent opportunity to meet new friends, be part of a great team, all while supporting our school!
PTO meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of every month at 6:00 PM. Meetings are located inside an available classroom in the main school building at St. Patrick School. Parents, grandparents, and guardians are welcome and encouraged to attend. You do not have to attend every meeting because we can communicate through different ways. Feel free to contact me directly with any questions.
