Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
The Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy PTO is made up of the parents of our students. Membership is automatic upon a child's enrollment. The PTO is a committee of the Board of Trustees and is chaired by an appointed Chairperson.
Throughout each academic year, the PTO plans and sponsors events which are meant to promote the purposes and goals of the school. While parent participation in any PTO sponsored activity/event is voluntary, we strongly encourage parents to become involved as these efforts enrich the lives of all members of the Meyer community.
The purpose and goals of the PTO and PTO events are:
- To enhance the educational experience for our students and to help generate a feeling of community among the parents, students and faculty of Meyer Academy.
- To work in cooperation with the Administration and Faculty to provide programs and activities for the parents on issues relevant to the health, education, and welfare of the students - as well as special activities for our families both on and off campus.
- To provide a volunteer work force to assist the school, as needed and with prior approval of the Administration.
Involved parents provide invaluable support for the school and help promote Meyer’s distinctive community spirit. Participation can take the form of becoming a member of a PTO committee, chairing a committee, volunteering prior to - or during - an event, attending PTO events, and/or volunteering to assist the Administration.
Our PTO leadership may be contacted through the school office.
