PTO stands for Parent-Teacher Organization, and it consists of parents/caregivers and teachers/administrators working together to support and enrich all Groton Middle School students. We support school staff, help promote a positive and productive educational environment, and assist in efforts to solve school needs through volunteering and funding.
There is also the PTO Membership that makes the PTO a success – these are folks just like you that come to meetings either monthly or when their schedule allows. At these monthly meetings, you’ll get updates on PTO events and activities. We welcome your ideas! Sometimes, we’ll need help on upcoming tasks and projects. Past PTO volunteer needs have included staffing a bake sale table, stuffing Boogram treat bags, baking, and creating flyers to support our fundraisers. Every little bit helps, and we need you in order to accomplish more this year!
So, you are wondering, who can be a member? If you’re a father, mother, caregiver, or guardian of a current Groton Middle School student, or if you are a staff member who teaches at GMS, PTO membership is for you! Please get involved in the great things Groton Middle School PTO is doing today!
Our primary objective as a PTO is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources, and services that will enrich and maximize the education of Groton Middle School students. To meet this important objective, we fundraise. Here are a few programs that we have sponsored and/or supported: 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Class Trips, Graduation Party, Dances, Two End-of-Year Scholarships, Teacher Appreciation, Spirit Wear, Spirit Week, Winter Concert Bake Sales, Boxtop Awards, 5K Run, 8th Grade Congratulation Lawn Signs and various other fundraisers and special events throughout the year.
As you can see, we are a small and busy group. This is where you come in! We need your help and ideas, and so does your child.
Here at Groton Middle School, we strive for excellence and what better way than to become involved today?
We are in need of PTO members in order to grow, and we are seeking volunteers to continue developing the organization. We have planned some exciting events this year in hopes to get more parents involved in their children’s education. The PTO is a team effort in which we cannot succeed on our own. Please come and join us by attending our next meeting or signing up by contacting any of the officers listed below.
A special thank you to all of our volunteers from last year for all their hard work and dedication to our great community.
