IC PARENT-TEACHER ORGANIZATION (PTO)
What is the PTO?
PTO stands for Parent-Teacher Organization. The PTO consists of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students at Immaculate Conception Catholic Schools. We support school staff, help promote student self-esteem, and assist efforts to solve school needs through volunteers and fundraising. All parents of IC students are encouraged to participate in PTO activities whenever possible, even if you are unable to attend our regular meetings.
Volunteers are an essential part of our success. By participating in the PTO, you can make new friends, gain necessary service hours, and have the invaluable opportunity to actively demonstrate to your child(ren) the importance you place on education.
What are the Priorities of the PTO?
We have a number of priorities, events and program goals each year. Some examples of past goals: to refurbish the playground, purchase new kitchen equipment, assist in buying new desks for classrooms, support student learning through online-accessible learning tools, and help fund new lighting for the school.
