The South Harrison Parent Teachers Organization is an organization whose purpose is to create a sense of community that supports our children in their academic growth. PTO does this by financially supporting critical educational needs, recruiting and staffing classroom and extracurricular volunteerâs needs, building community ties and strengthening communication between South Harrison and families.
We try to meet these goals in several different ways. We have several fundraisers throughout the year. Some examples of past fund raisers are; Dinners, skating parties, selling items, events, prize drawings, and craft shows to name a few. Some items that PTO has purchased for teachers in the past include magazines in teacher's classrooms, activities and teaching materials like hands-on games and books. The PTO also provides special activities for students such as Fall Festival, Movie Parties, and the Marathon Basketball tournament. Through these activities we supply a family rich environment for students and their families.
We are always looking for moms and dads to get involved in our endeavor. This doesn't necessarily mean that you have to attend a PTO meeting, although we always welcome you. PTO is entirely dependant upon volunteers and we encourage you to give a little of your time. If you would like more information or have a suggestion, we encourage you to contact South Harrison Elementary for more information.
