• 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 comprised of parents, teachers, and staff who 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
      • headphones
      • DVD players
      • educational magazines
    • assist with kindergarten and 5th grade graduations
    • support our musical cast with dinner before their performance
    • supply History Bee trophies
    • yearbooks for our staff
    • free child care at our PTO meetings
    • recognition for our teachers and staff during Staff Appreciation Week
    • funding for assemblies
    • fun family events like movie nights
    • and more!
