MISSION & PURPOSE

 

The purpose of the Lovett Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is to enrich the education of our children and help foster an engaged community.

 

  1. Promote, support and enrich the education and welfare of children attending Lovett Elementary school and at home.

  2. Facilitate communication and encourage cooperation among parents and teachers by supporting the teachers and administration of the school

  3. Support activities and programs of the school through financial and/or voluntary support to seek to secure for every child the highest advantage in physical, mental and social education

  4. Foster goodwill and support for the school in the community at large and 

  5. Promote better community participation in school functions.

 We host a series of events throughout the school year that foster our sense of community.  All members have full voting privileges at PTO meetings and are strongly encouraged to participate in any way they can. Review the PTO Board and Committee Directory list to see where you might want to get involved. 

 

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PTO PRESIDENT

Welcome Lovett Families!  The PTO Board is looking forward to serving you this 2021-2022 school year. We hope to continue to make the PTO a relevant and vital part of the Lovett community with your help and support.

 

You can support the board by volunteering your time, talent and/or treasure. All of these gifts help support our teachers and administrators do bigger and better things to enrich our students' lives. Lovett cannot do what it does without everyone's support!  The first and easiest step is joining the PTO.  Attend a monthly PTO meeting to get plugged in to what is going on at Lovett.  Volunteer to work directly with kids as a room parent or field trip chaperone.  Join an event planning committee like Carnival or Auction.  Attend one of our many events.  All of these activities not only help us reach our goals, but they are fun and they build relationships within the Lovett community which is part of what makes Lovett great!


As always, the board is open to hearing your ideas, questions, suggestions and comments. We are happy to listen and help in any way. All of our contact information is on this website, so feel free to contact us.

We look forward to a great year!

Sincerely,

Seann Duffin
