How important is my involvement?

So many parents are busy with work, grocery runs, transportation to kids sports and events, paying bills and managing lives that it feels that there is no room left to help at school. Many parents feel that if they become involved then the commitment will never stop. It can a daunting and often stressful decision to pitch in and help.

But every parent’s involvement is KEY TO SUCCESSIt takes a village to raise a child and you are just one piece of your child’s village

Please consider participating – large or small – in the way that works best for you. See all the many volunteer opportunities available at PTO Paul II PTO

What is the PTO meeting schedule?

The PTO meets every second Tuesday at 7 pm throughout the school year in the library. They typically last one hour. It is attended by the PTO members, the Principal, a Teacher representative and all parents are welcome! This forum is a chance for parents to bring concerns, share ideas or gain knowledge about what is happening at their child/children’s school. Most meetings will consist of a review of past and upcoming events and then the second half will focus on planning.
