Who We Are


MCPS’s PTO is a non-profit organization that consists of parents, teachers, school staff, and community members. Together, we work hard to support our school and enhance the learning environment and experiences for our children. We organize fun school events and the money we raise goes directly back into our school. The PTO is able to supplement teacher instructional materials, purchase technology & physical activity equipment, provide supplies for students, as well as provide staff treats to show our appreciation for their dedication to our students.
