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 to participate in our monthly
meetings and volunteer to run activities and events. 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.

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
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. Funds donated to the PTO 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. For more information on the PTO, please see the "PTO By-Laws" on the left-hand side table
