What's Happening Now?
Johnson's PTO is a 100% volunteer-based organization run by parents and staff. The PTO coordinates and sponsors many community and fundraising activities to enhance the experience of our students and their families as they learn and grow through Johnson.
ALL families are encouraged to join and participate in the PTO. Membership is $5 per family and meetings are held once a month (Typically the 2nd Tuesday) during the school year. At meetings, Parents can find out how they can get involved in supporting Johnson through PTO events and activities. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings to learn about and participate in the PTO's support efforts. If you can't attend, meeting minutes will be posted on this website and the PTO officers always welcome your comments and ideas.
The PTO is organized and led by a group of officers who are elected by the community each year - President, 2 Vice Presidents, Treasurer, Secretary, and Teacher Representative. Issues and topics are brought to monthly PTO meetings for discussion and decisions are made via votes by the membership at meetings. This year we hope to implement Committees to serve to support a focused effort of the PTO.
PTO Meetings will generally be the second Tuesday of each month (with possible exceptions) at 6:00 p.m. in the JES Cafeteria. Be sure to check out the PTO website for the exact dates or call the office.
PTO fundraising may support the following: music teacher supplies, art teacher supplies, guidance counselor events, physical education, classroom needs, assemblies, fieldtrips, copy machine supplies, 5th grade and kindergarten graduations, and Earth Day flowers and green schoolyard materials. We historically have lead two key fundraising activities each year plus our Harvest Festival with a Silent Auction. All fundraising ideas are welcome and will be considered. Please contact any Officer with your ideas.
The PTO plans to coordinate and support a variety of community activities throughout the year. These events bring us all together for fun with friends new and old. We challenge you to come be a part of PTO!
