What We Do and Who We Are

  • The PTO helps families get involved with and stay informed about the school and their child's education. 
  • We work with the school to enrich students' education and support high quality education. 
  • The PTO also serves to strengthen community ties with the school. 
We do this by hosting events and programs at the school and by providing additional funding to the school for field trip scholarships, classroom supplies, and equipment.

All Shorewood school families automatically are members of the PTO, and all are welcome. There are no fees or need to sign up. We are all the PTO!

School Playground
Improvements GoFundMe

After talking with the school and its staff, families, and the community, the PTO has decided to focus on improving the school playgrounds. We're hoping to make the playgrounds more fun and inclusive for all ages and abilities, including very young children. Here's a link to the GoFundMe page with all the information, including a way to contribute: LinkThis is a badly needed project that will require a lot of work and help from Shorewood School families and beyond, so please share the link with families, friends, and your Facebook page. Together, we can make changes that will benefit the school and community for many years to come. 

Thank you!
