Welcome to Our Page!

The PTO works to support the school, enhance the learning experience for all children, and strengthen the community bond.

What is the PTO and who can be a Member?

Our PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) that strives to enhance children’s educational experiences.  Becoming a member does not mean you automatically sign up to volunteer, it just means you support our group and believe in what we’re doing.

 PTO Programs & Fundraising

Our primary objective is to provide our schools with funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child.  To meet this important objective, and afford services that are no longer covered by our school budgets, we must fundraise.  Though it may not be our favorite responsibility, it is a necessary one.  Our school community must raise money if we want to provide our children with the storytellers, story and puppet crafters, music, author readings, concerts, nature talks, grade and curriculum based assemblies and other hands-on, interactive experiences and presentations that we have in the past.

Become a Volunteer…Why YOU should get involved!

As you can see, we are a busy group.  This is where you can come in!  We need your help, and so do your children.  Over 500 independent studies on parent involvement show that when parents get involved in their children’s education grades go up, test scores improve, children are more likely to attend better schools after high school, they have fewer discipline problems and they’re less likely to use drugs and alcohol.  Get involved TODAY!

During these fiscal times we need you more than ever to be a voice for our students.  We need your support and strength to help ensure that programs, classes here at the Ferryway are kept to the high standards that we as parents expect for our kids.

PTO is Going Green

Because of the amount of paper we use that eventually gets thrown away, we are starting an effort this year to dramatically reduce our paper usage.  This will help our environment AND reduce our office expenses.  Rather than send home fliers, we will send emails and post information on our website.  Please help us by sending us your email address.  If you are new to our schools, or have not received our emails, please email us at
