The Orchard PTO has some exciting news. We are going to begin using a new website and phone app called Konstella for all of our PTO communication. Konstella will help you stay up to date with events and happenings that involve the PTO at Orchard School.

Using Konstella you will be able to:
  • See other members of your child’s class for the upcoming year
  • Access an online student directory and send private messages to other parents
  • View upcoming PTO events
  • Sign up for volunteer events
  • Join and participate in PTO committees
  • Process online payments for field trips, Orchard gear, and more!
If the PTO has your email, we will send you an invitation to join by the end of June 2018.. Simply click the "Join" button in the email and follow the directions.

Alternatively, you can go to go to https://www.konstella.com/p/orchard and click the Request to Join button at the bottom of the page.

Summer Library
Thanks to the PTO the library at Orchard will be open for eight weeks on Wednesdays from 9 -12 beginning on June 20th and ending on August 15th (closed July 4th.)  

Can't make it on Wednesdays? In addition to this there will be our version of a "Little Free Library" located in the school lobby that will be a place where students may give and take donated books. With this Little Free Library books will be available anytime the school is open, typically between 8 AM and 6 PM, Monday - Friday.

Please feel free to clean out your bookshelves for donations as well as to stop by to pick up a few "new to you" books over the summer.   

We need your help!
The PTO is looking forward to next year and we need your help! We have a handful of PTO board positions that need to be filled. We are seeking a Co-President, a Co-Vice President, a Co-Treasurer and a Co-Secretary. The positions require no experience, but merely a commitment to attend one PTO meeting each month and to participate in school-wide activities as time allows. The PTO can't run without parent volunteers.

   PTO Introduction   
Welcome to the Orchard PTO! All parents or guardians of children at Orchard School are automatically members of the PTO.

The goals of this year's PTO are:
  • To offer support and show appreciation to the staff by helping with certain classroom costs as well as hosting appreciation events throughout the school year.

  • To offer enrichment for all of our students through fun and educational events and activities during the school year.

  • To put together fun, family oriented events over the course of the school year which are geared to build a stronger community.
