The PTO's purpose is to support academic programs, enrich student learning, and enhance communications between parents and the school community. Fundraising plays a big part of the PTO calendar.  Funds raised are used to support classroom field trips, provide classroom supplies and equipment, supply student incentives, and support enrichment programs.

    MEMBERSHIP:   All parents/guardians of Claude Chester students are members of the PTO.   There are no membership fees or forms to complete.  Claude Chester staff members are also members and a vital part of the parent-school partnership.

    MEETINGS:    Meeting times vary so please check our calendar or event list for full details.  Our agenda includes discussions on current school events and activities, educational program updates, community concerns, and fundraising activities.   Childcare is provided at each meeting and we encourage all parents/guardians to participate and share their ideas.

    EVENTS:   Each year the PTO provides support to our students and staff by providing family fun events and fundraising activities.   Click here to see a current list of upcoming events.

    ONGOING ACTIVITIES:   Collections such as Campbellā€™s Soup Labels and Box Tops for Education are two of the ongoing programs at Claude Chester that provide additional monetary supports to student programs.   Labels and points can be clipped and sent to Claude Chester School at anytime during the school year.

If you do then sign-up with the local stores to help us earn extra points, dollars, and credits to support the school.   Click here for a complete list of stores and instructions.
