Join the Parent Teacher Club! 

 

Please consider becoming active in our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), (previously the Parent Booster Association, or PBA). All parents and teachers are automatically members, and there is no fee to join.  Our purpose is to help the school in a variety of ways:

  • Providing financial and volunteer assistance
  • Promoting open communications and good relationships
  • Encouraging parental involvement and welcoming new parents 
  • Organizing and managing fundraising activities
  • Providing enrichment for the children, faculty, and staff

 

Become Active

You can design your own role in terms of our PTO.  Here are some ideas:

  • Attend meetings 
  • Donate
  • Join a committee
  • Lead an event or project
  • Volunteer

  • October 1, 2019 
  • November 12, 2019

You are also welcome to attend our monthly executive board meetings, as a non-voting member.  These are also on Tuesdays, generally at 8:00 am in the school library resource room:

Donate!

If you don’t have time to attend meetings, but would like to donate, please note that our fundraising priorities at the moment are:

  • Outdoor campus improvements (gardens, playgrounds, sports fields)
  • Fine arts program (skilled instruction, resources, shows, supplies)

 

You may donate by writing a check to Episcopal Day School with PTO in the memo.  Please enclose a note specifying which of the priorities listed above you'd like the money to be used towards, along with your contact information.

Stay tuned for a list of in-kind donation options!
