If you're the parent of an elementary age student in the Clinton School District, there's a new organization you can be involved in.
After a few years absence the Clinton Parent Teachers Organization, or PTO, has been revitalized. Sacha Young, Assistant Principal at Clinton Elementary School, explains a group of parents recently came forward to re-introduce the PTO. She says the group helps with a variety of activities in the local kindergarten through 5th grades.
Mary Diener, Principal at Clinton Elementary, notes the organization currently has around 60 active members. She says Nicole Finch has been named the PTO President, and explains that anyone with interest is welcome to get involved.
While the PTO is becoming involved in several aspects of elementary education, one of their primary goals is to assist with fund raising activities. Diener explains those fund raising efforts benefit the schools' activity funds.
The new Clinton K5 PTO is actively seeking parents to assist in their efforts. You can learn more about the organization by contacting Clinton Elementary School. The group also has a Facebook page at Clinton K5 PTO.
