ABOUT THE TJ PTO

The Thomas Jefferson Parent Teacher Organization (TJPTO) is a volunteer organization, made up of parents, guardians, and teachers, working to promote the welfare of children in the home, school, and community. Through fundraisers and many volunteers, the PTO brings extra social and enrichment activities to the school. These include cultural arts programs, the student directory, book fairs, after school clubs and much more. The PTO also helps the school enhance the learning environment through the provision of additional technology and equipment, books and supplies, playground/school ground improvements, as well as coordinating volunteer efforts to directly support TJ’s staff and teachers.
Membership in the PTO is open to any parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school and to teachers.
