Welcome!  

None of us know what the 2020-2021 school year has in store - just that we'll get through it together! One thing is certain - the line between school and home - between parent and teacher - has blurred. Now more than ever, a strong, active PTO can help us work together to raise and educate healthy, happy children.

The unique challenges of the 2020-2021 school year require greater communication. This starts with you! Your registration provides the South Davis PTO with the information we need to help keep you informed. Your $5-per-family membership fee will fund our mission.

  • Other Information:
    • Meetings - You do not need to attend the meetings to be an active member of the PTO.
      • Until further notice, all monthly meetings will be virtual
      • All adult family members are welcome and encouraged to participate in decision making
    • Volunteer Program - Because there are no in-school events allowed for the foreseeable future, there are currently no volunteering opportunities. That said, we hope that changes after Thanksgiving. In that event, we will let you know how you can lend a hand, if you're interested.
    • Fundraising - Due to COVID-19-related restrictions, we are unable to do any in-school fundraising until further notice. We are exploring other ways to raise money. In years past, the PTO helped fund field trips, teacher grants, family events, etc., that aren't feasible at this time. However, a digital sign for the front of the building is on our wish list as well as other items that can help improve the quality of our children's school year experience.

 We appreciate any extra donation you can make when registering!

TOP 10 REASONS FOR JOINING

 

10. It’s for every parent or grandparent. Your voice and ideas can help improve the quality of education for your children and their peers.

 

9. It’s flexible. The PTO has progressed to meet the changing needs of parents. There are a variety of ways parents can help and be involved in the PTO depending on your availability.

 

8. Your membership is one of our primary fundraisers. The PTO relies on your membership funds to provide educational and social services for all South Davis children, teachers and staff.

 

7. You’ll be a role model. You’ll show your children that not only are they important to you, but their education is as well. They’ll see you taking a stand to make education better for them, and chances are they’ll do the same.

 

6. You’ll be there. The elementary school years go quickly! They are also the years where your children WANT and LOVE to see you at their school.

 

5. You’ll make a difference. By volunteering with the PTO, you’ll be able to use your skills for a noble cause – to help create the best educational environment possible for our children.

 

4. You’ll be part of a network. Every PTO function is an opportunity to meet other parents in the same situation as you. You will be connected with a group of parents who share a common goal of improving South Davis Elementary for all children.

 

3. You’ll get connected. There’s no better way to know what’s going on at the school than to be in the school’s PTO. You’ll get to know teachers and administrators on a familiar basis.

 

2. It’s important to the school. PTO provides support to teachers and administrators, and creates a caring and supportive atmosphere in the school. With all of the budget cuts, schools are becoming more dependent on parent groups.

 

AND THE #1 REASON… It’s good for your child! Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school make better grades and have fewer disciplinary problems at school. When parents get plugged in at school, their children do better.

 

The more time you take out of your day to become involved with your child’s education, the better. Being an involved parent can be as simple as helping your child with homework or even just reading together. You don’t have to make the PTO a full-time job to make a difference. However, volunteering occasionally - when conditions permit - and attending school events really does matter. Showing your child you value education will teach them to value it as well.
