The Scholls Heights Parent Teacher Organization (SHPTO) is volunteer led organization at Scholls Heights Elementary School. Our sole focus is on our school community.

SHPTO is a nonprofit organization governed to promote the

well-being of each student, and to enhance their learning experience at home and at school.  


Our Mission

The Scholls Heights Parent Teacher Organization (SHPTO) is about our students and our community. Our mission is to promote volunteerism and to foster teamwork among parents, teachers, staff, and students so as to provide a healthy and constructive learning environment for each student.


Our by-laws.

Our Values

At the Scholls Heights PTO, we believe in the values of kindness, respect, responsibility, hard work, and having fun.  These values guide us in everything we do and help us create a positive and supportive environment for our students, families and staff. 

To ensure an effective and productive PTO, we have established a code of conduct that represents the minimum standards of behavior and performance. While it cannot cover every possible situation that may arise as a SHPTO member, this code is intended to guide your behavior and interactions within the community. Adhering to these principles and behaviors will help create a positive and collaborative environment for all members of the Scholls Heights community.


Join our Meetings

SHPTO Community Meetings happen September - May on the first Wednesday of the month at 6pm PST. Join us via Zoom.
