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.
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.
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.
The SHPTO is run by a team of elected volunteers who have a connection to a student that attends Scholls Heights Elementary.
Each board member serves a two-year term in their roles.
