St. Margaret Mary Catholic School is proud to have a very active and effective PTO. Our school’s parent-teacher organization acts as a liaison between home and school and financially supports non-budgeted items needed by the school and teachers. The PTO promotes SMM through projects and fundraisers such as the Fall Festival, the Winter Gala, selling of Spirit Wear, and hosts numerous hospitality activities throughout the year. For the past several years, the PTO has raised more than $100,000 for our school. Without the efforts of the PTO, St. Margaret Mary Catholic School could not provide the same level of education at the same cost for our children as it does now.
One of the main efforts of the PTO is to support the technology needs of our school as well as provide many other resources for our classrooms such as Smartboards, Brightlinks, computers, laptops, updated software, etc. The PTO is comprised of parent board members that hold elected positions and teacher representatives. However, the success of the PTO depends on the involvement of many volunteers and numerous committees that oversee the PTO activities.
The PTO encourages parents to attend meetings and participate. There are two all-school meetings during the year, one in August and one in the spring. Monthly Meetings are generally held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month in the A/B room (adjacent to the Hospitality Room). Parents can stay updated with PTO news and updates on the school website, the parish bulletin, or on our new Facebook page www.facebook.com/St.MargaretMaryPTO.
