Parent Teacher Organization

PTO Objectives

PTO stands for Parent Teacher Organization. All parents or guardians of Highland Park Central students and all HPC teachers and staff are automatically members of PTO. There are no dues or fees. We support HPC!

The PTO functions in the folowing capacity: coordinating major fundraisers for the school, working to promote better communication between HPC families and the staff, providing assistance and support to a variety of school sponsored activities and events, and striving to improve relationsships between HPC students, staff, families, and the community.

-To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school and the community.

-To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth.

-To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth.

-To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental and social education.

You are invited! HPC parents, guardians & staff are welcome to attend Parent Teacher Organization & Site Council meetings each month.

PTO participants will meet to discuss a variety of issues that take place at the school. Examples include: developing a school comprehensive plan, developing student discipline plan, holiday celebrations, academic achievement and grade level recognition, and planning the next fundraiser or Scholastic Book Fair.

Our sincere hope is that every parent and staff member will make the PTO a priority during the school year. Your input and suggestions are wanted and needed.
