We Are Starting Fresh
The PTO is your voice.
Everyone at Sargent - family, teacher, or staff - is a member of the PTO.
You do not need to pay dues or make a donation to join the PTO, come to meetings, or have a vote.
The PTO is organized by an elected team of volunteer teachers, staff and parents/caregivers. The organizing team (sometimes called the “board”) relies on the wider Sargent community to run activities and programs that benefit all students. There are countless ways to help.
