Thurston PTO
  • Volunteer as a Recess Monitor at Thurston!

    Can you believe there are only a few short weeks left of this school year? As summer break quickly approaches, we are in need of some more adult volunteers to help out at recess at Thurston!  Recess is from 11:50am-1pm.  We ask that if you sign up, and you have not volunteered before, that you check in at the office with your ID.  The recess supervisor, Anne T., will help you get to a place where help is needed on the playground.  To sign up, please click this link, scroll down to the bottom to see the final weeks of the school year, and type your name and email into a date that you are avaiable! 

    Thank you so much to all of our current volunteers and for your consideration of donating some of your time to help out at the school!

Welcome to the Thurston PTO

  • Thurston’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a group of parents, teachers, and staff with the common goal of providing a bridge between the school and community, as well as the initiation of school improvement efforts. The PTO is also responsible for planning school fundraisers and school-wide events. Each year, PTO provides funding for field trips, classroom supplies, extra-curricular programs and clubs, literacy resources, curriculum enhancements, building beautification, and much more. This would not be possible without the contributions and support of our Thurston Community.
    The PTO meets the third Tuesday of every month on Zoom to discuss relevant topics, goals, and the appropriation of funds. Everyone is welcome to attend.
