Dear St. Maria Goretti School Families,

Saint Maria Goretti Catholic School’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is honored to serve our school community and we look forward to welcoming you back to school on Thursday, August 15th!

The purpose of PTO is to provide for the parents’ active participation in the life of the school through a variety of social, service and fund-raising opportunities. It is also the purpose to foster a close relationship between parents, the school staff and the faith community for the good of our children.

Because of last year’s efforts, we are able to provide many fun events for the upcoming year. Our monthly planning meetings are the second Thursday of every month. We meet in the conference room in the school office. Please join us at 8 a.m. Everyone is welcome.

As always, the PTO will sponsor several fun-filled events throughout the year! However, it’s important to note that none of these events happen without you, our parent volunteers. When we commit our time, talents and treasure to SMG’s School, we are rewarded by strengthening our school’s community. You can help with classroom parties, volunteer to help set-up and/or staff a PTO event, or help to sell SCRIP. The opportunities are endless and with lots of volunteers the burden is light. Check out the school calendar or watch your email for the next chance to join in!

Stop by the lunchroom on your way out and enjoy an ice cream with your friends.
