About the
Okemos Public Montessori at Central PTO

Who: The PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is a dedicated group of volunteers – parents, teachers and staff – dedicated to promoting the well-being of our children and supporting our school community.

What: The PTO raises money to support the school community, including buses and scholarships for field trips, teacher stipends for supplies, Montessori materials and other teacher wish list items, playground equipment, technology supplies, library materials, extracurricular clubs, teacher enrichment activities, speakers, social events, and so much more.

When: The PTO meets monthly (see schedule below) and everyone is welcome.

Help: Coming to meetings is the number one way to learn what is going on and what our current needs are. We also always need help with projects and events. We welcome everyone!
