The schools of District 181 are enhanced by strong and supportive Parent-Teacher Organizations (PTOs). There is one PTO for each school; the Presidents from each PTO meet monthly. The Superintendent, Director of Communications, and a Board member serve as liaisons to the Presidents and attend each meeting.
Parent volunteers serve in many capacities in District schools, but share the same goals of enhancing the educational experience for all students and fostering communication between school and home. Through fundraising activities, the PTO groups have provided new playgrounds at several schools, embarked on landscaping projects including brick patios and courtyards, supported cultural arts programs for all grade levels and have partnered with the District in expanding technology for students.
We are grateful for the support of families in enriching the experience of teaching and learning in District 181!
