What is the Wellington PTO?
The Wellington PTO is a nonprofit parent teacher organization. The PTO’s primary functions are to sponsor student and community activities and to organize fundraising events that allow us to provide enrichment programs for students as well as professional development for our teachers.
The PTO's Mission Statement is to:
- Enrich the educational experience of the children
- Build a stronger school community
- Facilitate and foster communication between the home and school.
Who benefits from the PTO efforts?
Our children are the primary beneficiaries of all the funds raised by the PTO. Our In-School Enrichment Committee works closely with teachers at each grade level to supplement their classroom curricula needs. At the same time, the PTO offers the parents of Wellington students an opportunity to become involved in activities at the school; to meet and work with other parents, staff and faculty; and to contribute to the educational and social growth of our children throughout the year.
The PTO supports Community Events, In-School Enrichment Programs, funds purchases for the school, field trip admissions & transportation, and much more.
