Walt Disney Parent Teacher Organization (WDPTO)
All parents are invited to be a part of our Walt Disney Parent Teacher Organization. This is a wonderful way to become involved with the school. The PTO meets monthly, and it gives the parents and teachers a forum to share ideas with each other. There are many very active committee opportunities for everyone, and it is a great way to get to know what is going on in the school.
See below for minutes of each meeting.
Meetings are held at 4:30 pm in the Disney Library. Childcare is provided.
