PTO STRUCTURE

Mission.  The PTO will strive to provide support to St. Martin’s Lutheran School of Annapolis, its Principal, the School Board, and the parents and guardians.  The PTO will support a program of spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual, and physical growth for the students of St. Martin’s Lutheran School.

Purpose.  This organization will work to foster cooperation and good will among all parents; offer a framework through which St. Martin’s Lutheran School’s families can participate in and support our school programs; and provide financial assistance to enhance the school environment for our students.

Membership.  All parents and guardians of currently enrolled students shall be voting members of the PTO.  All teachers, administrators, and school board members are welcome.

Participation Opportunities.  There are three to four membership meetings per year on different days of the week and in the evening to enhance participation.  Issues are voted upon by those in attendance.  All officers and all members are welcome.

Officers.  Officers are elected to one-year terms by the attendees at the May PTO meeting from a slate of nominees as determined by the nominating committee.  A Parent Liaison to the School Board is elected to serve a three-year term.
