What is the PTO?
The PTO is an Organization of Parents and Teachers committed to enriching the educational and social experience of students and their families. The Taylor Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) welcomes new and returning Taylor School families. We fund enrichment programs and field trip transportation, coordinate family events for the Taylor community and volunteer to support the school in many different ways. Note, we do not create curriculum, nor dictate programs. We support and sometimes create ideas for programs which can be voted on by parents and may or may not be accepted by teachers.
Parental involvement in education contributes to student achievement in school. Studies have shown that when families are involved in children's learning at school and at home everyone benefits. Schools work better, families become closer, and students improve academically. (Source: U.S. Department of Education)
PTO Mission Statement:
The Charles G. Taylor PTO's mission is:
- to operate and conduct an organization to aid the students of Charles G. Taylor Elementary School by providing support for their educational and recreational needs and to open communication between the adminstration, students, parents and teachers;
- to foster a sense of pride, support and enthusiasm thru fund-raising and other activities and to promote a positive school/community relationship that will enhance the students' educational environment;
- to promote and help develop a cooperative work relationship between parents and teachers;
- to serve as a forum for the discussion of parents concerns and provide recommendations to the school administration.
Volunteer efforts range from a wide variety of in-school support services to coordinating Taylor's participation in family and community events. Each year an assortment of fund raising programs are offered so that families have choices in how they participate. Funds are used for enrichment programs, field trip transportation, and school pride events as well as for other PTO approved expenses that benefit our school and community.
It is our intention to create a welcoming "Taylor Family" that encourages families to participate in both educational and social events that build pride in our school and in our community.

Thanks to the many PTO members who have chaired, joined committees and worked very hard during the summer to get things started as well as throughout the school year.
If you'd like to become more involved, we encourage you to join us. The small group atmosphere of committees makes it easy to get to know other parents as you work together to support the school. There are lots of involvement opportunities with many different levels of time and commitment involved. We have projects that can be done day or night and from home or at
