The McLaughlin Middle School PTO is a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers and administrators who have a special interest in our children, families and our school.

Our PTO members meet at least once a month to plan and organize various activities to support the school. The PTO sponsors special programs and projects, assists by volunteering, and coordinates many events and programs in support of the school. Additionally, the PTO uses the monthly meetings as an opportunity to openly share concerns and to become informed on issues regarding children and our school.

All are invited and encouraged to attend our regular monthly PTO meetings, typically held at 6:00 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month. Parental involvement has been proven to positively enhance our school, its programs, and the education and welfare of your children.

Next PTO Meeting - February 20th, 2019 at 6:00pm in the school library - All are welcome!

Upcoming Events:
