• 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
      • headphones
      • 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 2019-20 school year, we will be meeting on the 2nd Thursday of each month, right after school. We meet in the library from 4:00- 4:30 and offer free child care in the gym. Please take the time to browse the tabs on the left! We value your feedback and participation!
