We cordially invite you to join our Parent
Teacher Organization. PTO meetings are normally held the third Thursday of
Our PTO provides many activities, services, and funds that benefit every child at St. Helen School. PTO is a great way to stay in touch with your child’s educational experience, participate in many wonderful activities, and have a voice in how monies are spent. It’s also a great way to meet other parents while giving of your time and talent!
As you can imagine, it takes quite a few people to make our programs successful. There are opportunities throughout the year to volunteer in many capacities. Look for the PTO Events and Volunteer Opportunities list included in this packet. We encourage you to consider each of the opportunities presented.
The PTO functions only with the support and participation of everyone at St. Helen School. We look forward to your involvement!
