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 families support, we are able to provide hands-on learning experiences including field trips (including the cost of busing), we've been able to provide supplemental classroom enrichment (including alternative seating options, headphones, DVD players, educational magazines, and more!), assist with kindergarten and 5th grade graduations, support our musical cast with dinner before their performance, supply History Bee trophies, yearbooks for our staff, offer free child care at our PTO meetings, provide recognition for our teachers and staff during Staff Appreciation Week, fund assemblies, and give back to our families by offering free movie nights.
Please join us for a monthly meeting! For the 2017-2018 school year, we will be meeting on the 2nd Thursday of each month, right after school. We meet in the library from 4:00 to 4:30 and offer free child care in the gym. Please take the time to browse the the tabs on the right to view our meeting agenda's and past minutes. We value your feedback and participation!
