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.
