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.
