Get Plugged in to the PTO

Your CTE PTO wants to make sure you know how to get “plugged in” throughout the school year!

July: A link has been emailed requesting volunteers for Media Center, POPS & specific PTO events throughout the year such as:  Family Fun Nights, Parents & Pastries, Grand-Persons Breakfast, Book Fair, ELF workshop, Hospitality, & Teacher Appreciation Week.  The lists generated are distributed to PTO general board chairs for the year so this link is really important to consider!

August: Look for a Room Parent callout! 

September: The first PTO General Membership Meeting of the year. Check here for more information.

Throughout the school year: Here are other PTO events that cannot run without volunteers:  Cherry Blossom Festival (250-300 volunteers needed), Lego & Math Clubs, Science Fair, and Wellness Wednesdays! The current first semester volunteer form is HERE! 

Social Media: To keep up with the PTO through social media, scroll to the bottom of the page for links to our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.

January-March: We will begin filling 2020-2021 PTO board positions.  PLEASE consider, as CTE PTO needs a rotating group of volunteers to keep things fresh.
