The Linden S.T.E.A.M. Academy Parent Teacher Organization is a group of enthusiastic parents and teachers who encourages family involvement in education while promoting the social, emotional, physical and academic growth of our children.
From August through June, the PTO offers a busy schedule of Fundraising events, from Catalog sales, Pies Sales, Book Fairs, Holiday Store, and much more. These events help the P.T.O. provide funds for many activities which incorporate learning and fun for all our students. School-wide assemblies such as storytellers, illustrators, and puppeteers are among the many shows brought to the Linden. Field trips to the Franklin Park Zoo, Plymouth Plantation, and the Museum of Science are a few of the exciting experiences that are also sponsored by the P.T.O.
We hope you will consider joining us at our many meetings throughout the school year. These meetings are held in the Cafeteria at 7pm on the first Wednesday of every other month starting in October, unless otherwise noted. New ideas are always welcome and all topics are open for discussion at these meetings. Each year P.T.O. involvement grows with active, involved members like you! Parental involvement is the most effective way of influencing a child’s experience in school.
We look forward to working with you throughout the 2015-16 school year to help make a difference in your child’s education.
We also invite you to contact us directly with any questions or concerns via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or
@ Linden S.T.E.A.M. Academy PTO.
