I am the current PTO president and have 4 kids under 8, 2 of which are enrolled at Aurora. Our PTO at Aurora funds so many things, field trips, school supplies, community events, and families in need at Aurora, just to name a few. Also, you get to be the first to know things happening at the school and you have a direct line to staff and Principle Borman as they attend the meetings as well. We need parent involvement to thrive and the more parents that get involved, the less work it is for everyone. If each parent helped out at the school 1 time, we would be turning help away…it’s really not that much work if we all pitch in. And, our kids love seeing us at school and sharing in the school activities with us. There are so many ways to help, you cant attend a meeting, sign up for a committee, volunteer to help at an event, sign up for a board position, etc… we have something that is a good fit for everyone. The more we network and the more we are involved the more successful PTO is.
Come check it out or contact us to see how you can help. We will take all that we can get. We try and keep the meetings to one hour long and we offer child care at our meetings so that way your kids can play while you attend.
I hope you will consider getting involved, even if it just means showing up.
Here’s to a great school year,
