At Good Shepherd the PTO encompasses all parents, relatives, and friends of our students, along with the teachers, pastors, and our school office administrators. The purpose of the PTO is to support each other in our parent and teacher partnership by helping providing our children with the best education possible. The team supports school families by providing information and open channels of communication, offering opportunities to get involved and build relationships with each other, and sponsoring one educational guest speak per school year. Further, it supports the teachers by organizing parent volunteers to help with events and extracurricular activities, providing an annual classroom allowance for them to spend at their discretion, and showing appreciation through a meal, small gift, or special treat during the year.
