The SJV PTO is an organization of parents/legal guardians, teachers and administrators working together for the benefit of all SJV children. The PTO strives to meet the needs of teachers and administrators outside of the SJV budget. Activities of the 2015-2016 school year provided $235 per teacher for a wide variety of classroom enhancements. The PTO performs fundraising to purchase instructional material and classroom items that are not otherwise provided by the school budget.
What we do
The PTO hopes to foster a greater sense of community for our children attending SJV. All of our activities are conducted to enhance the learning environment by supporting parents, teachers and the academic setting of SJV. We strive to facilitate positive communication between the school and parents, for the ultimate benefit of our children. We organize events, which bring the SJV community together and keep the lines of communication open between families and school. We support the school in maintaining a first rate educational environment for our children.
PTO General Meetings are held for one hour once a month. They are designed to bring parents together to create a positive difference for our children. Activities are discussed and planned at these one-hour meetings. All parents of SJV students are members of the PTO, and are encouraged to attend.
How does the PTO help the school?
Activities sponsored by the PTO committees directly benefit SJV students and teachers. Most of the money raised by the PTO is used to support academic enrichment activities in many different areas including math, literacy, and science. In addition, PTO support allows SJV students to enjoy extracurricular enrichment opportunities.
How does the PTO raise money?
The PTO sponsors a number of FUN-raisers each year including the Family Halloween Dance Party, Santa’s Workshop, a Daddy-Daughter Dance, and dinners at local restaurants. The PTO sometimes hosts an adult Euchre night.
How can I join?
Every parent is automatically a member of the PTO. Contact a PTO officer to learn more about volunteer opportunities available with the PTO. You also can e-mail the SJV PTO directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
