Pennwood PTO Objectives
The Parent Teacher Organization is a diverse group of parents/guardians, teachers and administrators dedicated to the well-being of students at our school. The PTO's goal is to support an environment where all students will have educational, enjoyable and memorable experiences at Pennwood Middle School.
Every year the PTO forms committees to work on specific tasks throughout the year. Some committees are ongoing and some occur only once a year. A list of committees and volunteer opportunities with descriptions can be found here. If you decide to chair a committee, you have the flexibility to schedule committee meetings for a time when it's convenient for you. We have an account set up with PTO Sign-Up Genius that all committee members can use to advertise help needed with their activity or task. Any sign-ups created will be prominently displayed on the main PTO webpage to get you the help needed. The Executive Team is also available to help with questions and guidance.
I work full time but would still love to help - what can I do?
If you work full time and are interested in assisting the PTO please contact us to let us know. There is work that can be done at home or after hours. You can also check our Sign-Up Genius to see ongoing volunteer opportunities that would fit your schedule.

We have a common bond. We care about creating the best possible experience for our children. We are neighbors and peers who share many of the same experiences. Many friendships have developed as a result of these connections.
