The Warren PTO is consists of Teachers, Parents, and the Community working together toward a common goal of developing a better school and a better educational experience for our children. The PTO strives to create an atmosphere where teachers and our children can do their best work. Everyone is invited to get involved and attend a monthly meeting and/or volunteer to help out with any of our events and activities. It is a fun way to get involved with the children’s school and make a difference in his or her educational and social growth. You will also have the opportunity to meet other parents and teachers.

At each meeting, we discuss a variety of topics and concerns related to helping our school achieve the best it can be. We are welcoming, friendly, and share many of the same concerns as you. Meetings are held in the Board Room of the Warren School. Free babysitting is also provided in the multi- purpose room during each meeting.

Volunteering doesn’t mean a huge time commitment either. ANY help you can provide could make a BIG difference. We ask that you only volunteer for something that fits into your schedule and interest. There are also many things that can be accomplished without coming to the school or a meeting at all.

If you would like to be more involved or if you have any questions or comments, please contact a PTO board member:
