Who is Summit PTO?
The Summit PTO is the parent teacher organization at Summit School. The PTO is comprised of parent volunteers and teacher representatives. As a parent of a child attending Summit School, you are a member of the PTO. The PTO relies on parent volunteers to plan and organize all of its programs and events. The possibilities for involvement are varied, flexible, and manageable to allow our families to feel connected to the heart of our school. Our community needs your gift of time, talent, and support to ensure the success of the parent teacher organization. There are numerous volunteer opportunities available to you: serving on the PTO board, chairing a committee, working on a committee, volunteering at an event, helping in the Knowledge Center and classrooms, and more. Would you like to help and you aren’t sure how? The PTO will help you find a way to fulfill your minimum 10-hour Summit volunteer time requirement in a way that accommodates your schedule.
The mission of Summit PTO is to enrich the educational experiences of Summit School through a close partnership among families, administration, and teachers.
