Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. We look forward to partnering with the parents, students and staff to foster a working relationship between home and school, in order to promote the welfare, growth and education of our children.

Each month we have a staff presenter in addition to providing information on upcoming events and important district news and updates. This month, Mr. Pruitt will be the staff presenter and will give an overview of the administration and school year including information on clubs and activities. We will also have a short presentation on the Guatemala host program. In addition, we will be presenting our budget for the year and then voting on it at next month’s meeting.

Our two main sources of income are PTO memberships and the Hassle Free fundraiser. Our membership drive will be from September 12-16. We thank all of the families that have already joined. The Hassle Free fundraiser will occur in the spring. Your support allows us to continue hosting dances, picnics, After Prom and the 8th Grade Formal.

Volunteering at Conrad Schools of Science allows parents/guardians the opportunity to form new bonds with other families and staff members. We will again be using Signup Genius as our main source to gather volunteers for our events. Volunteer Links will be posted on our new website www.conradpto.com as they become available. A listing of activities and our meeting schedule can be found on the document tab of our website.

Currently, we have the following positions open on the PTO Board: 6th Grade Parent Coordinator (2), 7th Grade Parent Coordinator (1), 9th Grade Parent Coordinator (2), 12th Grade Parent Coordinator (2), HS Vice President and Parliamentarian.
