Wheeling PTO Meeting
Apr 4 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Have you ever considered being a part of the PTO (Parent Teacher Organizaton)?  Why should parents get involved?  Being involved can make a big difference in your child's life.  Research shows that when parents are involved in their children's school, the children are more likely to:

  • Earn better grades
  • Score higher on tests
  • Pass their classes
  • Attend school regularly
  • Have better social skills
  • Show improved behavior
  • Be more positive in their attitude toward school
  • Complete homework assignments
  • Graduate and continue their education

The PTO plans fun events and raises money for the school, but we can't do that without your help.  You don't need any experience to be part of the PTO. Any parent can join.  Just come to a meeting.  Below you will find the dates for this school year's PTO meetings.  We meet  in the library from 3:30-4:30 pm.  Hope to see you there!
