Welcome to the Kyrene de la Mirada PTO website!
Perhaps you are familiar with the PTO and you really know what we are about and just want to see how you can help. Or perhaps you are new to the PTO and are asking yourself, 'What is the PTO?' We hope that you find everything you need to know about us right here.
PTO stands for Parent-Teacher Organization, consisting of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students. We support school staff, help promote student self-esteem and assist in efforts to solve school needs through volunteering and fundraising. We try to provide opportunities for our families to grow together as a community.
The PTO is made up of several elected board members; some are 'old hands'; others are newly elected and ready to dive in. Our 2017-2018 election took place on Tuesday, May 16, 2017. You may be wondering who was at this meeting and who voted. The PTO meeting, like many during the school year, was open to all families of our school. Those voting members who attended were able to vote using a ballot system. Our board members were all elected with unanimous voting across the board.
Our primary objective as a PTO is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources, and services that will benefit each child in the school in an equal but great measure. This is a huge objective that we take very seriously, and personally because after all, our children go to this school too! Your PTO staff work very hard all year round providing opportunities for social growth within our very own community.
All we ask of you is support. Show your support by attending the events, supporting the school, staff, and PTO. Show your support when we fundraise and don't be shy, show your support by becoming a part of Mirada PTO!
