Welcome to Mashburn Elementary School PTO

Welcome from the Mashburn PTO!

PTOs Benefit Everyone!   A PTO addresses issues that are important to parents and public school administrators. We fight for full funding, quality teachers and capabilities for schools to thrive.   

Some of PTOs Benefits:

  • Leverage Volunteer Power.  PTO organizes hard-working, dedicated volunteers.  Parents are ready to help implement school improvement programs.
  • Improve Communication.  PTOs frequently coordinate production of a school newsletter and information fliers, keeping the entire school community informed of current events, issues and accomplishments.  Regular meetings allow PTOs to share information with members.
  • See Measurable Results. More than 85 research studies conducted over the past 30 years prove that kids do better when parents are involved.  Grades are higher.  Test scores improve.  Attendance increases.
  • Discover More Dollars.  Local PTOs are self-funding.  By inviting the entire school’s parent community to join, they generate membership fees to pay for programs.  Local PTO fundraisers support school programs, building improvements and educational events.
  • Boost Children's Well-Being.  PTOs focus on what students need to be successful in their learning, including nutrition, health, school safety, physical fitness and general well-being.  PTO works with schools to ensure that children succeed.
  • Enjoy Informed Parents.  Involved parents understand the challenges schools face and become part of the solution.  By developing a closer relationship with parents, student achievement improves, and the school develops a positive reputation in the community.
