The PTO focuses on building school community, by helping people to direct their energy and resources to support the school. The school has a seven-year cycle (kindergarten through 6th grade), and we rely on new families to participate in activities as current families move on from the school. The PTO is all of us, every parent and teacher, working together to provide a great learning environment for the students.

Every Campus School parent, guardian, and teacher is considered a member of the PTO.

The PTO supports SCCS in several ways:

  • Support at the classroom and schoolwide level is provided through the Class Representative system. Class reps are parents who volunteer to work with their child’s classroom teacher to help organize and facilitate parent participation in classroom activities and schoolwide events.
  • At the school wide level, the PTO sponsors Activities and Events, such as the annual book fair, skating parties, merchandise sales, and speakers, that focus on building community, some of which are fundraisers.
  • The Advancement Committee organizes an annual appeal.  This is the sole source of income that enables the PTO to support financial aid, educational enrichment programs, and professional development for teachers.

 

Who attends PTO meetings:

  • Co-chairs, Treasurer, Secretary, Class Rep Coordinator
  • Current parents and guardians
  • Class Reps and committee chairs are urged to attend when possible.
  • Representatives from the Campus School faculty and administration

INSPIRED BY FRANK STELLA: Our first graders have been working on weaving with yarn. They have learned how to use circular looms and considered the aesthetic and pragmatic properties of woven fabric. They then asked the question: What happens if we try and weave with painted lines? It’s a question that the abstract artist Frank Stella contended with in his efforts to make the elements of a two-dimensional painting come to life in sculpture. Mr. Hepner and his first-grade artists demonstrate their version of this work of art and math on bulletin boards around SCCS.  Click here for more.
