Kingsolver ES: Kingsolver ES Parent Teacher Organization

Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO)

The PTO, an organization of parents and teachers, works for a better school environment by providing both financial and volunteer support for our school programs. The PTO sponsors a variety of activities such as book fairs, school pictures, monthly birthday celebrations for all children, the sale of school t-shirts and many other events. The Parent-Teacher Organization consists of the following positions: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. In addition, there are several committee coordinator positions that vary by the school PTO such as volunteer, spirit week, membership and box tops. If you are interested in volunteering, serving on the executive board, or being a committee coordinator, please contact the PTO via kingsolverfortknoxpto@gmail.com

Specific objectives include:

Providing a medium for exchange of information among parents, teachers, and other interested groups.

Encouraging and developing programs and activities, which serve to enhance the quality of student education.

Identifying and promoting opportunities for students to secure the highest advantage in their academic, physical, and social growth.

Encouraging and maintaining a working dialogue between members, the local educational school system, the local government, and the community at-large on matters affecting the general welfare and education of students.
