Edwards Middle School PTO
WELCOME TO THE EDWARDS MIDDLE SCHOOL PTO
The primary objective of our PTO is to provide our school with funds, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every student. There are many events throughout the year that the PTO both leads and supports with the teachers & staff. Each event benefits the students and could not be possible without parent volunteers. We understand that families are busy and sometimes this leaves little time for volunteering. There are opportunities all year and if you are unavailable during the school day, there will be opportunities during the evenings or on your own time. We hope that you take time to review the events that are planned. Feel free to email us at email@example.com with any suggestions that you may have. Please consider joining the PTO @ $5 per family. The money goes to support the students events. By joining, we will have the information to keep you up to date on events and volunteer opportunities. Joining the PTO does not obligate you to attend meetings or volunteer.
