What is the Carpenter PTO?
PTO stands for "Parent-‐Teacher Organization." At its simplest essence, it is "parents who care!"
As a group of caring parents, who want the best for our kids, and for their education, we seek enhancement opportunities to improve learning experiences, social interactions and overall development of our young ones!
Even in great school districts like this, there are supplemental items or unique events and experiences we would like to give our children, which go beyond the standard budgets/basic infrastructure. A great example being the classroom smart boards we funded a few years ago, which were extremely well received by our students and faculty, and remain in use today!
So we work in close partnership with Carpenter School Principal Brett Balduf & Assistant Principal Emily Lech, plus District 64 Superintendent Dr. Laurie Heinz, to fill gaps we see, by funding
activities & equipment purchases, or providing volunteers for various events.
Sounds great, but what does it take to do all that?
All it takes is for each Carpenter family to join via a small $20 donation, to the PTO to help support all this.
Carpenter School's PTO is organized for the purpose of supporting the education of the children at Carpenter School by fostering relationships among the school, parents and teachers.
The PTO sponsors assistance to teachers in classroom settings, holds fund-raisers for supplemental educational materials and experiences, supports school and family social interaction, and provides a non-biased forum for sharing information on issues that impact our children.
Our goal is to complement the school curriculum with additional opportunities for parents, teachers and students to learn, socialize, communicate and grow. It is our belief that the team effort of a parent teacher organization offers the best possible learning environment for our children.
