Who We Are

Conant PTO is comprised of parents, caregivers and teachers working together to support our school by building community, raising funds for enriching student activities, and having some fun! Every parent, caregiver and teacher is automatically a member – yes, you are part of the PTO! – there’s no fee to join.

Participation means a lot of different things; the PTO has opportunities for all teachers, parents and caregivers - whether they are working inside or outside the home - to contribute, including:
