2009 BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

PTO

Our Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is sponsored by the school to promote a cooperative effort at meeting the needs of the student body. Through its partnership with the school, the PTO supports a wide range of initiatives to enhance our faith-focused learning environment.

The parent organization should strive:

  • to serve in an advisory capacity to support the principal/administration;
  • to provide a means by which parents can respectfully articulate their values and expectations regarding the school so that these can be examined and addressed by the principal/administration;
  • to support and promote quality Catholic education at the school;
  • to encourage Catholic values of family life;
  • to share with teachers the values that parents are attempting to develop with their children at home;
  • to acquaint parents with up-to-date information concerning current developments in educational initiatives as they may affect the School so that they can be in a better position to promote the legitimate rights of their children;
  • to unify parents in an effort to raise funds each year for the school.

MISSION STATEMENT

We, the Parent Teacher Organization of All Saints Catholic School, grounded by our faith in God, commit ourselves to build community amongst school families and within the parish.

As dedicated parents and teachers, we work through fellowship to raise and expend funds necessary to enhance the learning environment of our students.

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we promote sound communications and social activities in order to cultivate a harmonious relationship between home and school and in our community.

The PTO’s main purpose is to promote home-school communication and to provide financial as well as moral support for the school program. The by-laws further state that the PTO shall not directly affect school policies. The general membership of the PTO meets every second month beginning in September. If additional meetings are called, notification will be sent home with the students. Many opportunities are available for parental involvement in PTO activities.

By registering their children for All Saints Catholic School, parents make a commitment to be actively involved in the school. Parents commit to 60 points of involvement throughout the year in the FAMILY Program. A contract is signed by parents by which they indicate areas in which they desire to be involved. Active parental participation creates further awareness of the school’s total educational program and support for its mission.
