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 virtually. Each meeting begins with a brief school update by our principal, Mrs. Alston 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.

Let's come together for the first PTO meeting of the 2020-2021 year! While we cannot entice everyone with free food and childcare (oh, those were the days, weren't they?), we can at least make it relatively easy for most to attend. Come for all or part of the meeting!
