Our Mission:

The Amanda-Clearcreek PTO is a nonprofit
parent teacher organization (PTO) whose mission
is to establish and nurture a close relationship
between the parents, teachers, and students. The
PTO sponsors assistance to teachers in classroom
settings, raises funds for supplemental
educational materials and experiences, supports
school and family social interaction, and provides
a non-biased forum for sharing information on
issues that impact our children. It is our belief
that the team effort of a parent teacher
organization offers the best possible learning
environment for our children.
