The Marymount PTO is at the center of our family community and provide a much-appreciated support network for new parents and children. Their contributions to the life of the school through fundraising, event organizing and providing a 'soft-landing' to families who arrive during the year are the social glue that underpin our unique Marymount culture. All parents are automatically included in the PTO when they enroll their children.
The PTO has formal by-laws and Board officers, and its main responsibility is to actively support the student learning and the mission of the school. Elections for positions of responsibility on the PTO Board are held annually. The PTO Board meets formally with the Leadership Team at the beginning of each school year.
A Homeroom Parent works with their respective homeroom teachers to coordinate and organize class events with the help of parent volunteers in the same class. Being a homeroom parent is a great way to get more involved in your child’s class, to see your children in their class environment and to get to know the teachers and other parents. It is an important role as you serve as a point person for parents in a particular class to help them navigate class activity, engage in parent-related opportunities and connect them to the PTO. Homeroom parents are a particularly important resource for incoming families throughout the year who need to get up to speed quickly and will appreciate the guidance of the parent of one of their child’s peers.
