PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION

We are blessed with a wonderful parent community that enjoys participating in all types of activities. Because we seek involvement from every parent, all families are automatically members of the PTO. 

The goal of the PTO is to unite teachers and families in supporting the joint interest of fostering an inclusive school community and enhancing the educational experience for our children.

Dear families,

Welcome to Holy Spirit Episcopal School!

At HSES we are blessed to have a very involved parent community. For the PTO to be truly effective and representative of the entire school, it is essential to have parent involvement from all parents. Therefore, all families are automatically members of PTO and encouraged to get involved! The PTO’s goal is to unite teachers and families in supporting our joint interest of fostering an inclusive school community and enhancing the educational experience for our children. The HSES PTO recognizes that families, teachers and school leaders must work together to succeed in providing the best spiritual, educational, physical, social, and emotional growth for the students of HSES.

Financial requests will be made on behalf of the PTO on two occasions.  A classroom dues will be collected at the beginning of each year for classroom parties and teacher birthdays. In addition, the PTO asks parents to contribute to a Faculty/Staff Christmas Gift Fund. The PTO Parent Ambassadors will send out a letter to their grade-level parents to collect funds for employee gifts. The money collected will be divided equitably among everyone—faculty, staff, coaches, and after-school care staff. We ask that school families support this effort and refrain from other types of gift-giving throughout the year. Of course, hand-made gifts or pictures from your student are still appreciated, and home-baked goodies are always welcome. This will eliminate uneven appropriation of gifts and encourage equal spirit among our teachers.

Over the years, HSES PTO has headed numerous successful fundraising efforts allowing for the purchase of new books for our library, over 50 new student laptops, six state-of-the-art filtered water stations, among many others. In addition to participating in established fundraising efforts, the PTO encourages parents to enjoy fellowship and community by volunteering and joining in on all of this year’s exciting events.

The PTO organizes and sponsors several events for our school throughout the year including Grandparents and Special Friends Day, FamFest, Movie Nights, Family Socials, Used Uniform Sales, Olympic Day, Spring Social, and many more! PTO members also take part in spreading cheer throughout school; encouraging teachers, students, and prospective families. Parent involvement is essential in the PTO’s efforts and successes. While many parents have busy schedules and may not be able to attend every PTO meeting or event, there are endless ways to volunteer and contribute to our school. Please contact me to learn about ways you may be able to help!

We look forward to meeting and working with each of you this year!

Sincerely,

Kimberley Manning
