What is the PTO?
Devon's Parent Teacher Organization is a non-profit with the goal to promote a closer relationship, interest, and understanding between the home and faculty of Devon School for the benefit and enrichment of each child.
Are PTO Meetings for Event Leaders & the PTO Board?
No, PTO meetings are for everyone! If you are a Devon Parent, you belong. The more opinions, feedback and ideas that are shared, the greater benefit for each and every child.
Is there a PTO membership fee?
Do I have to volunteer to attend the PTO meetings?
No. Volunteering is optional. Every person has a different capacity to give and be involved. And your capacity to volunteer will change from one year to the next. Determine what you can joyfully give and carry on the tradition of volunteerism at Devon while setting a great example for our kids.
What if I'm really busy?
Devon's PTO is made up of men and women who have a wide range of daily commitments. Some work 60 hours a week, some are semi-retired. But most juggle work, bills, household chores, kids, sports and homework, just like you! Parents caring for toddlers & babies bring them along to meetings.
How does attending PTO meetings benefit my child?
So many of the wonderful activities and programs your child enjoys at Devon is because of the PTO! Also, research shows that parental involvement within a child’s school increases their academic achievements and decreases behavior issues. Not only does being involved put you in direct communication with other parents and staff, it shows your child that you are interested and invested in their educational experience.
What if I can't make the meeting?
