Who We Are
The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is run by volunteer parents/guardians and teachers. We are extremely fortunate to have so many parents and caregivers who help out in all aspects of our school. Our high levels of parent/guardian involvement creates a close-knit community for our kids and defines our community culture as one that works together well.
We encourage active parent/guardian participation in their children’s education, from the classroom to school-wide activities. Thank you to all who are involved and bring so much energy and talent to our school. We have an open invite to all new parents/guardians and anyone who has not yet been able to participate to join us! We have a lot of fun and enjoy our success in working together.
Feel free to email us anytime. You can also message us individually via Konstella private message.
