Cooke PTO

What is PTO?

The Cooke PTO is a not-for-profit organization. We are a group of parents and teachers that give our time to help our schools in any way we can.

Why do we exist?

The why is simple….because we care! It takes time and energy but we feel our work is very beneficial. Our mission is to enhance the educational experience of all our children. We do this by hosting and sponsoring a number of activities throughout the year.

How can you help?

First, you can become a member. Membership does not require your attendance at monthly meetings.
Second, we need you to help support us with our various fundraisers. Without them we could not pay for any of the activities we sponsor. We want to DO MORE, but we can’t without your support. We try to pick a variety of fundraisers at the lowest price point possible to make it easier for everyone to participate.
Third, if possible, please volunteer for one of our events. We have both day time and evening opportunities. We even offer an incentive, in the form of a gift card raffle.
