What is the PTO? Simply put, it stands for Parent Teacher Organization. But it's much more than that! The PTO at Chief Joseph is a non-profit organization where parents, teachers, and staff come together and are dedicated to improving Chief Joseph School of the Arts. We are 100% volunteer based, and together we provide fundraising opportunities to give back to our school.
With our Chief Jo family's support, we are able to provide things like:
- hands-on learning experiences including field trips (including transportation costs)
- supplemental classroom enrichment:
- alternative seating options
- educational magazines
- and other items to benefit your child’s learning experience
- assist with kindergarten and 5th grade graduations
- support our musical cast with dinner before their performance
- free Movie Nights
- free Winter Festival where Santa makes an appearance
- hosted events like our Farmstead Fundraiser (come see a teacher kiss a pig!)
- free child care at our PTO meetings
- recognition for our teachers and staff during Staff Appreciation Week
- funding for assemblies
- and more!
Please join us for a monthly meeting! For the 2018-19 school year, we will be meeting on the 2nd Thursday of each month, right after school.
