    How Do You Get Started?
    The annual PTO auction is held each November in the school’s cafeteria and is set up and run by an all-volunteer staff consisting of organization members, parents and employees of the school. There is no cost for the admission to the event and it is open to the public. This revenue will enable the PTO to fulfill grant requests for the school enhancing the educational curriculum of the school and providing many benefits to students, their parents and guardians, and the school staff.
    THE 2019 PTO AUCTION WILL BE HELD IN November! Please join us!
    Donations Wanted
    The PTO will be happy to accept donations of new items, attraction tickets, and/or gift certificates that may be sold at the auction. Used items should be memorabilia or have antique value. Cash or checks are always welcome.
