Welcome to Christ the King's PTO!
We have many activities planned for our students and families throughout the school year. Your involvement is essential to the success of our organization. So please join us at our events... You'll reconnect with friends, meet new families, support your children and their school, and have fun in the process. All school parents are welcome to attend our meetings, we hope to see you there!
What does PTO support?
Money raised by PTO activities goes towards the RIF program in grades 3-5, purchasing science consumables, supporting cultural activities and supporting student vision screening at CTK. Funds are also utilized by your student's teacher(s). PTO provides annual teacher start up funds, staff birthday presents, staff luncheons, and staff appreciate week activities. Fun Day is exclusively funded by PTO money. In addition, Extreme Bowling, Grandparent's Tea, PTO Donut Sundays, and our Preschool Parent Mixer are also funded by money raised through your PTO activities. In addition, PTO gives a SHG $500 scholarship to two 8th grade students each year. Finally, this past year, PTO helped support the building of our new playground!
