The Winnebago PTO invites all parents/guardians and teachers of students in Early Childhood to fifth grade to attend monthly meetings. The first meeting is in September. Agendas for meetings are sent home with students in advance and will note the meeting location and time.
PTO Meeting Dates and Agendas. PTO Meetings are at 6 p.m. in the Jean McNair Library
The PTO is funded through the following fundraisers:
Volunteers connect our community with our schools, and there are so many opportunities to get involved. Along with attending PTO meetings, being on a sub-committee for an event, or working on a fundraiser, there are other volunteer opportunities that may fit into your schedule.
Now that the school year is underway, many of you will be attending games to show your support. While we hope you will attend the events to support our schools, it also is imperative that any student fifth grade and younger is accompanied by an adult.
