SAS Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO)

The Scotchtown Avenue Elementary School PTO is an active organization set up to carry out both educational and fun activities for students during the school year. Parents and guardians are encouraged to join the PTO and become involved with some of the many committees we have, including class pictures, book fairs, Family Fun Nights, tricky trays and more.

Why join the PTO? Because with you, we make a difference! In 2018-19, we plan to fund the following:

  • Fall and spring class trips for the entire school
  • Family Fun Nights
  • Kindergarten Ice Cream Social
  • School assembles
  • Teacher mini grants for classroom resources
  • So much more!

At each PTO meeting, volunteers may sign up for different upcoming events. You can still join the PTO even if you can’t attend monthly meetings. We encourage school-wide parent and teacher involvement. There are many ways SAS families can get involved!

To become a member of the SAS PTO for the 2018-19 school year, please fill out the SAS PTO registration form.
