PTO hosts a series of informational meetings during the first semester in Room 605 by the front desk. They start at 6:30 p.m. and last about an hour. Speakers typically cover topics such as service learning (community service hours), discipline, how to prevent bullying, scholarship information, technology at Stagg and health policies. Parents are invited to suggest topics of interest.
Attending meetings is a great way to find out more about PTO. We would love for you to join us.
The annual holiday stagg/teacher appreciation lunch is Wednesday, Dec. 12, in the Teachers Lounge. PTO provides the entrees but needs donations of side dishes such as appetizers, chips and dips, fruit, veggies, relish trays and desserts. Items may be brought to security at the North door that morning by students or brought by 10 a.m. by parents. Please mark that it's for PTO. Volunteers are needed to help set up and decorate at 6 p.m. Tuesday and to help before, during and after the event. Food is served during all lunch hours. To donation food or volunteer, please contact Nena at (708) 612-0555 or email@example.com.
