White Oak Elementary's PTO is an active group of parents, teachers and administrators that serve a common purpose....to better educate our children in their elementary school years in an environment that fosters their social growth and development.
The PTO meets monthly on the third Thursday at 6:30 PM. Attendees are invited to bring suggestions and questions for the Board at that time. We actively seek others to be engaged in the decision making process for the programs the PTO supports.
Our volunteers, chair persons and board members give of their time to help drive this mission through at school activities, fund raising and support of educational programs.
Over the past years, White Oak's PTO has supported teacher supplements, reading development programs, playground maintenance, classroom technology, grounds maintenance and more. Each year we raise tens of thousands of dollars that are put right back into the school for student development.
During the 2008 - 2009 school year, White Oak's PTO supported all of the above programs, plus developed and managed a
Santa's Workshop at holiday time, Sweetheart
Dance at Valentine's, Family Movie Night during
the spring and other "community" activities.
Our fall calendar for 2009 kicks off with a
"Welcome Back" cookout and bar-b-cue to
welcome our students and teachers back
for another great year.
Our Board of Directors is made up of parents
in different walks of life, each bringing a
passion for making White Oak Elementary
an even better school in which to educate our
children. The Board meets monthly prior to
scheduled PTO meetings. Calendars are
announced on our website in advance of meetings.
The PTO supports over 25 different programs at
White Oak, requiring committee chairs and volunteers to help manage these processes. From managing the announcement sign on the front of the property to running our biggest fund raisers, volunteers make the wheels go 'round at our PTO.
