The Forest Road PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is a group of parents and guardians who collaborate to develop programs and activities for the students of Forest Road School. Building these relationships help further enhance our students’ experience at our school. The PTO is a wonderful way to get involved and to give back to the school that is building the foundation to our children’s lives.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend the PTO meetings, which are held every month. The PTO has many diverse committees staffed by parent volunteers and would not be successful without tremendous enthusiasm and participation. It’s a great way to meet other parents, get involved in your child’s school, share your talents and contribute to the caring Forest Road community. The two main ways to become involved are fundraising and volunteering your time. Interested in joining?
Fundraising is a reality for all schools. However, we have decided to focus most of our fundraising efforts one one big one in October, the Boosterthon. This allows us to raise a larger amount of money earlier in the year so that all the children who participate can benefit from what is raised.
Some of the smaller fundraisers we do the rest of the year include our Annual Used Toy Sale, Parent Trivia Night in the fall, Progressive Dinner in the spring, Box Top Collection, Restaurant Nights, and Flying High Nights. There is something for everyone with the PTO-sponsored fundraisers and we rely upon the help of our talented and generous parent community as volunteers and supporters alike. Learn More »
The PTO supports curricular and non-curricular requests. Each year we contribute funds to every teacher that they can use to purchase supplies and adaptive seating for their classrooms, provide each student with a birthday book, and arrange school assemblies. We also create and maintain the online directory, which is provided to all families. Other things we support include: the Yearbook, Sock Hop and Neon Night, Ice Cream Blast, Family Parties, Fun Lunch, the Back-to-School Party, and Field Day. We also help recruit parent volunteers to help run many of these social activities and classroom parties.
In the last couple of years, the PTO has also funded a large climbing wall in the school gymnasium and the Gaga Ball pit on the playground. Learn More »
