Soldier Hollow Charter School has a very active Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), whose goals include:
• Supporting the school through volunteer and financial assistance
• Fostering better understanding through communications between parents and faculty
• Encouraging parent, teacher and community involvement
Members of the PTO include parents and guardians of Soldier Hollow students, faculty members and professional staff.
Our teachers and staff are incredibly resourceful when it comes to getting students what they need, but given the opportunity to work with parents, the gains can be so much stronger. We love the unique assistance that parents can give.
Through fundraising efforts, special skills, and simply offering a helping hand, our PTO involvement helps parents make noticeable, long-term improvements for our school. Best of all, our kids are proud of their PTO parents!
When parents get connected to the school, children get better grades, do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems. PTO involvement helps you build a good relationship with your child’s teachers, principal, and office staff for stronger communication throughout the year.
Whether you have a full time or part time job or are a stay at home parent, there is a role to play that fits your lifestyle and time constraints. Our PTO welcomes new ideas and skills. Volunteering is so much more enjoyable when you are able to use your natural talents. When you are doing what you are good at and enjoy, volunteering becomes that much for fun and rewarding.
The common bond our parents share is that they care about creating the best possible educational experience for their kids. Through their children, parents often make new friends and connections. PTO involvement is a great way to develop relationships with other parents and teachers so you can be more in the know of the schools latest events and happenings.
PTO functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers and discuss issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences to make the school year better for everyone.
Children spend so much of their time at school. Being involved at the school in any way shows them that you are invested in their education. It also shows them the importance of being part of a larger community. Being a part of the PTO gives you the opportunity to role model the value of working together as a part of something bigger to make positive changes.
We are so appreciative of our PTO and the time they put in throughout the school year. Get involved with the PTO to have a direct hand at organizing fun social events and fundraisers for the school. Whether you can help a little or a lot, every little bit makes a difference!
