Board

The Mars Elementary PTO is a School-Affiliated Organization (SAO) with separate bylaws, insurance, and annual budget.  We have strict financial controls in place.  Our 16-member board, along with our committee chairs, plans and funds programs for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6.

BE A PTO HERO! Your child’s school needs your help! There are so many ways to be involved and make the most of your child’s educational experience. From volunteering for school activities to making food for Staff Appreciation Luncheons, all help is wanted and appreciated. To find out how you can help the PTO, contact your building chair or a member of the Executive Board.

Come to a meeting!
