Support PCPS By Joining PTO!
Membership is $5.00 per family. Being a member of our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) gives you a voice in supporting your child's educaton but does not commit you to participation of any kind.
We will have a contest in which homerooms will compete for the highest percentage of family memberships. The class in each grade level with the most memberships will be rewarded with a popcorn party! The class with the most memberships in the whole school will also earn a pizza party.
The membership deadline for the class competition will be Friday, August 3oth.
