PTO Presents

birds of prey

PTO Presents is a monthly designated day in our school calendar when we provide extra enrichment opportunities to the students. For students this looks like special assemblies, class visitors, special projects, and more.

Having a dedicated day to do this allows us to ensure that most other days throughout the month are without interruption and follow a consistent daily schedule. Behind the scenes, these enrichment programs are also opportunities for teachers and support staff to either attend collaboration meetings as teams or attend  professional development in small groups.
