Parent Teacher Organization

What is the PTO and what does it do?

Sheridan School PTO is a non-profit organization of parents and teachers working together for the betterment of Sheridan Arts Spanish Dual Immersion Elementary School.

The purpose of the PTO is to enhance and support the educational experience at Sheridan School, to develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parent involvement, and to improve the environment at Sheridan School through volunteer and financial support.

Here is what your PTO accomplished during the last school year:

  • Nearly $2,000 in Teacher Grants
  • Used Uniform Sale at Sheridan’s Back to School Open House
  • Holiday Continental Breakfast for Teachers and Staff
  • Holiday Gift Bags for Sheridan Families in Need
  • Holiday Gift Baskets for Teachers & Gift Bags for Educational Assistants
  • ZOOTOPIA Family Movie Night
  • Teacher and Staff Spring Appreciation Lunch
  • SING Family Movie Night
  • Spring Scholastic Book Fair
  • Pizza Dinner for Spring Talent Show/Art Crawl
  • End of School Carnival

For the 2017-2018 school year, we are planning a School Carnival, Scholastic Book Fair and several Movie Nights. We are working on Teacher and Staff Appreciation Days, Teacher Grants, Used Uniform Sales, Holiday Gifts for Families in Need and more!

Why should I become a PTO member or volunteer?

We need your help! The Sheridan PTO is a small and busy group. We are in need of growth and are seeking volunteers to continue re-establishing the organization. We have planned some exciting events got the upcoming  year in hopes to get more parents involved in their children’s education. The PTO is a team effort in which we cannot succeed on our own.

Participation through volunteering allows you to be “hands on” with your child’s education. All research indicates that when families are involved, a child is more apt to get higher grades, be more likely to graduate, and go on to college. Our children love to see us in this environment where they spend seven hours a day. You get to know your children’s teachers and your children’s friends.

Participation through attendance at PTO meetings gives you a voice. You help decide what we do as a group. You help decide where the money should go. If you are new to Sheridan, the established families are available to answer questions and ease your transition into becoming a school family. An added bonus is that you have the opportunity to meet wonderful people who can become great friends.


How much of a time commitment will it be?

Only YOU can decide how much time you can give.  Even if you can help at just one event or handle one task per year, it would be greatly appreciated.  Volunteering doesn’t have to mean a huge time commitment, we have jobs to fit everyone's  time schedule and interests.


When and where does the PTO meet?

The PTO meets the second Thursday of each month September through June from 6:30-7:30 pm in the Family Room.
