All dads, moms, grandparents and other guardians of Abbot students, as well as our principal and teachers, are members of the Abbot Parent Teacher Organization. As PTO members, we contribute to our school by volunteering in the classroom, sponsoring field trips and assemblies, raising funds for school improvements, and working with teachers, staff and each other to enhance the learning environment at Abbot.
Everyone is invited to come to the PTO meetings. We had a lot of success involving new parents by having meetings over Zoom. Please join us over Zoom during the 2022-2023 school year. Look for the Zoom Link in your Inbox. Look for our updates in your email inbox, here on Abbot’s Website, and on social media.
