Pittsfield PTO Board

  • The PTO is led by a board of parent and teacher volunteers. We generally meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month (link to full schedule below) from 6:00pm to 8:00pm in the Media Center. At about 5:30pm before each meeting a free dinner will be provided.  Each meeting begins with a brief school update by our principal, Mrs. Shakarian, followed by a short teacher presentation. All meetings are open to our Pittsfield School community and we encourage all parents and guardians with a desire to be involved in their child's school to attend the meetings. Please consider joining us at our next meeting where your comments, concerns, and ideas are truly welcome!

    You may contact any board member with questions you may have regarding the PTO at Pittsfield Elementary School.
