About Us

Children are the Future

Greetings from Kyrene Traditional Academy Parent Teacher Organization!  We are a group of parents just like you who are interested in supporting our school while fostering a fun community environment. The role of our organization is to establish and maintain a working relationship among parents, school, and community. We share a common goal of working together towards success. We are a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization run by volunteers to support school improvement.

The PTO DOES:

*Support the educational programs and extracurricular activities of the school.

*Encourage parents’ involvement in their individual children’s lives, education, class, and school.

*Organize fundraising events to support some additional programs, equipment, and services not covered in the school budget.

*Provide feedback/assist with increased awareness of school safety and security issues.

*Provide feedback and suggestions for school programs

*Support the educational goals of the school and assist with attaining those goals through parent and community volunteerism.

*Recruit volunteers and coordinate volunteer efforts to staff PTO functions and assist with school programs.

*Stay aware of legislation and political issues that may impact education and schools.

*A LOT!!!

The children of today with be the leaders of tomorrow!

HOW CAN I BECOME INVOLVED?

Contact one of our board members (contact page)  and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. You can even stop us in the hall, as we’re often at school wearing our PTO badges. We promise we don’t bite! 🙂 Come talk to any one of us and get involved!

HOW IS THE PTO ORGANIZED?

We are organized into an executive board and a number of committee chairs, each of which is responsible for the various activities and fundraisers that take place throughout the school year. Each of the positions within the PTO is handled by avolunteer parent just like you. As you can imagine, it takes many people to make these events happen, and that’s why we value your input and hope you will consider getting involved. Any amount of time is appreciated – big or small!

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP RIGHT NOW?

1. Sign up for our newsletter. This is our database of contact information that we use to communicate with parents. Even if you are unable to volunteer, we still need your information so you don’t miss out on school activities, contests, fundraisers, and prizes for your child.

2. Start saving Boxtops, and Campbells Labels,  Send them in to your child’s teacher each week. These clippings earn our school hundreds of dollars each year, so every little bit counts!

3. Register your Fry’s and TARGET REDCARD (fundraising)  so our school can earn a percentage of profits from your purchases at no cost to you! For Fry’s, please go to www.FrysCommunityRewards.com This is NEW this year. It just takes a minute to register your Fry’s card (you only need your phone number if it’s linked to your card) We are still under “Kyrene del Sureño PTO”
