About Parkway PTO
The PTO's main purpose is to raise money to benefit students and teachers. We reach out to the community for sponsorships to help us hold 2 main fundraisers every year. In September we have the Back to School Dance and Auction and in the Spring we have the Carnival. All funds raised are invested back into the school. The PTO sponsors a play to come to MPES and Science week each year where kids get the hands on interactive learning that they love! We assist teachers in purchasing items for the classroom and also fund field day and teacher appreciation events. The PTO has upgraded the water fountains and the sound system, covered the
playgrounds, purchased technology, PE equipment and books. We help supplement the cost for motivation speakers and field trips. We love giving our time to give back to the school and we welcome any help you can give whether it be a monetary donation or your time. Any time you can give is greatly appreciated! We look forward to seeing you soon, in the mean time, we would like to introduce our group to you below!
