What is a PTO?

A PTO is a nonprofit Parent Teacher Organization, comprised of a governing board, which works together with parents and teachers to achieve goals for the improvement of the school and the benefit of the students. A PTO sponsors assistance to teachers in the classroom setting, holds fund raisers for educational materials and equipment, and supports school and family social interaction.

HES PTO Mission Statement
