PTO IS THE HEART OF THE SCHOOL!
The primary goal of PTO is to provide our school with volunteers, funds, programs, resources, and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child and to benefit the school. We support school staff, help promote student self-esteem and assist in efforts to solve school needs.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Parents, grandparents, friends, and relatives are invited to show their support for our PTO by becoming sponsors. Each family at T.S. Cooley is encouraged to submit at least 2 sponsorships at $5.00/each. There is no obligation once sponsorships are submitted, although volunteer opportunities are encouraged throughout the year. Click HERE to pay sponsorships online. Cash or checks (made payable to T.S. Cooley) can be sent to the front office.
Any individual, company, or business that is interested in sponsoring school events can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together, we can accomplish more! Work schedules and safety protocols create flexible volunteer opportunities for all. Click HERE to let us know if you're interested in volunteering on campus for school events or from the comfort of your home.
