TCAPS Montessori PTO

The TCAPS Montessori 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 student programming. 

The mission of the TCAPS Montessori PTO is to strengthen and enrich the educational and social environment of our school.  We provide opportunities for the school community to learn, socialize, communicate, and give back.  Every family and staff member is encouraged to stay informed and get involved.  We believe that active members are the key to our success.  Active members help distribute the workload and make all of the events more fun!  Be sure to fill out the PDF DocumentMember Information Form before you leave.

We believe that active members are the key to our organizations success.   Every family and staff member is encouraged to stay informed and get involved.   Many hands really do make light work, and it is more fun too!   Read below for more information or fill out the PDF DocumentMember Information Form and we will be in touch with you.   

 

Connect on Social Media - An easy way to be informed is to join us on social media.  Find us on Facebook (TCAPS Montessori PTO) and / or join our Boomz group to say "in the know"  about upcoming events, read fun facts, or share articles and resources with other members.  

Volunteer - Volunteers are almost always needed - for PTO Events, LEAP Activities, and in the classrooms.  Let us know that you are interested in helping out and we will contact you when a need arises.  Simply fill out our External LinkMember Information Form and we will get you on the list. 

Support Fundraising Efforts - Fundraising is a vital component of our PTO's mission.  All funds raised go directly back to support the school and / or classrooms.  We are very appreciative of all the contributions (financial and otherwise) given by school families, their friends and neighbors.  Please consider contributing in one or more of these ways in the upcoming school year:

  • Make a lump sum financial donation
