Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

Central Grade School PTO invites all parents to get involved in school activities and events and/or considering becoming a member of the PTO board. The PTO works throughout the year to bring quality enrichment opportunities to our students as well as raise funds for classroom support and student programming. 

Some of the events include the Fall Festival, Movie Nights, Staff Appreciation Week, and Spring Bash. Your involvement and input is vital to supporting our school and students! PTO meetings are held once a month and are open to the public. All Central Grade families are encouraged to attend.
