St. Stephen’s Episcopal PTO
Engaging with the community is one of the core values at St. Stephen’s; we encourage families to get involved with the PTO so that we, as parents, may lead by example. At St. Stephen's - "PTO" doesn't stop at Parents and Teachers - if you are part of the St. Stephen's family, parents, grandparents, extended family, teachers, staff members - we welcome you to join us and be a part of the PTO.
The focus of the SSESH PTO is engaging families in school activities, building community, and supporting communication between the administration and parents. We want every parent to feel like they are a part of the community and a fabulous way to be connected is to lend your talents to our school. We need all kinds of parents, those that are good at organizing events, fundraising, or sitting quietly behind the scenes working on a project at home. Most of all we just need you to show up for your school and children - there is a place for everyone at SSESH!
We hope that you will join us at our meetings or coffees throughout the year and help us build community and make connections.
**In order to volunteer at a school event with students, adult volunteers must complete the Safegaurding God’s Children training.
