Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO)

Each elementary school in St. Louis Park has a strong and active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). Many volunteer opportunities exist in the school to help support its learners. PTOs also help plan and organize a number of events at our elementary schools such as book fairs, read-a-thons, carnivals, imagination fairs and much more. PTO meetings are typically held monthly at each school, are open for anyone to attend, and are communicated on each school’s respective website.
