What does the PTO do?


We are fortunate to have a very active PTO and thanks to our many parent volunteers, we continue to have a very positive impact on our children's education and experience at Coulson Tough.
The PTO is divided into committees which each have a specific purpose or task. These committees are managed by a board member, but often require the help of many other volunteers. There are committees that plan and execute the school's fundraisers, staff the Library with volunteers, coordinate field trips for the teachers, organize appreciation luncheons and treats for our amazing staff, and much more.
