Together We’re Building A Bridge To The Future!
Welcome to our New Palestine Elementary PTO website! We hope this site will help connect our parents and staff to resources and information to further enhance our children’s educational experience.
The NPE PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is composed of dedicated parents, teachers and staff that come together to support our school. The PTO plays a major role in fundraising to benefit the children at NPE. The PTO raises about $30,000 annually to create programs for the students that are not paid for by the district. Through the efforts of the PTO, we are able to support enrichment programs such as: Field Trips, Assemblies and Technology (computers, software, etc.).
There are many opportunities for families to get involved in our PTO. Volunteers are the key to a successful PTO. Join us at our next meeting or event. You’ll find it is a rewarding way to be involved in your child’s education. You can view our PTO Programs for an idea of the type of involvement opportunities you can find at NPE. All of the event chairs and PTO Board Members welcome volunteers for the events and activities throughout the year. Participation could be as easy as collating documents, sending in donated goods, set-up or clean-up at an event, making phone calls, etc. We hope you will join us this year!
