    Overview

    Each Saint Mary’s parent and teacher is automatically a member of the PTO. No dues or signups are required. An executive board recommends programs consistent with Diocesan guidelines and school policy that contribute to the fulfillment of the PTO’s purpose.

    Board Elections

    If you want to be more involved with the PTO, but are not ready for a Board position, please consider volunteering for a committee. A separate signup genius will be provided for those who wish to express interest in serving our community in this manner.

    As you consider running for a PTO Board position, please thoughtfully review the responsibilities of each Board position, as stated in the PTO Board bylaws.

    In addition to the responsibilities of each board member, as outlined below, a member of the PTO Board is expected to volunteer at PTO sponsored events. PTO Board members also act as liaisons between parents/staff and the Board. These positions are frequently viewed as “all hands on deck” when organizing/implementing events. The position of Vice President traditionally transitions to the roll of President at the end of the term.
