Welcome to the Sifton Parent Teacher Organization

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a formal organization that consists of parentsteachers and school staff.  It is not affiliated with Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) or Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA.) The PTO sponsors assistance to teachers in classroom settings, holds fund-raisers for supplemental educational materials and experiences, supports school and family social interaction with family events, and provides a non-biased forum for sharing information on issues that impact our children.  PTOs are individual to each school, and do not require any dues.  All parents/guardians of students enrolled at Sifton Elementary are members of the Sifton PTO!  This means YOU!

A PTO generally consists of a board. These members may include a president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. They may also include various specialty positions, such as chairpersons for events and planning.  The board typically governs the PTO by creating and voting on meeting dates, general meeting programs, etc., but it is the PARENTS and staff who are needed to voice their opinions when it comes to voting, and to volunteer their time to help run events.  The PTO Board, which generally consists of 5-6 working parents is not able to manage it all on their own.

Our PTO has a Facebook page where parents can communicate with them quickly, and stay up to date on current PTO events.  “Like” and follow the Sifton Elementary PTO page on Facebook to stay up to date on PTO events and other topics!
