WELCOME TO THE COUNTRY MEADOWS PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION (PTO)
The Country Meadows Parent Teacher Organization supports the educational and social community of Country Meadows Elementary School.
Membership Information: All parents/guardians and Country Meadows staff are encouraged to join the Country Meadows PTO. Your participation is welcome at any level, whether it be simply becoming a member, attending a PTO meeting, volunteering to chair or be a member of a committee, or volunteering to work at a PTO school event.
Benefits of Becoming a Member: Research shows that when parents are involved in their children's education, the children are more likely to have better academic success, have better social skills, and be more positive in their attitude toward school. When parents get involved early in their children's education, the results are more pronounced and long-lasting. In addition to supporting your child, becoming a member has many benefits for YOU:
- It's a great way to meet other families with children the same age as your own.
- You will become a greater part of your children's early learning experiences!
- You'll get to know the teachers at school and to understand their needs and ideas.
- You can create, plan, and execute fun events for the whole family!
- You'll experience feelings of self-worth through volunteering your time and seeing your efforts pay off in the smiles of your children and their friends.
- You can help raise money for a great cause–your children's education!
- And finally, the Number One reason to join us... WE WANT YOU!
