Get involved. Stay Involved.
Make a difference.




Thank you for visiting the PTO website! This is the first step in becoming an active member of your child's education and supporting our school. The goal of the PTO is to build meaningful partnerships between families and schools and the community at large. We work to support the educational success, health and well-being of all children.

By becoming a Porter PTO member you earn one volunteer hour, as well as being able to cast a vote on any school program funding that the PTO would like to support.

If you have questions or comments or just need a little direction, we are here to help! You can always contact us by email. We are happy to be serving our school and the community at large! Thank you in advance for your support and dedication to our school.

The Porter Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a membership organization, comprised of the parents, staff members, and teachers of Mary G. Porter Traditional School. We rely on our members to contribute their time and skills to our school community. Every individual who joins PTA is giving something to not only their child, but to every child.

Mary G. Porter relies on the commitment and involvement of our dedicated parents. Parents can join the PTO by paying $10 per family membership fee, which helps support the financial needs of the organization. Make checks payable to the Porter PTO, complete the PTO Membership Form (a copy can be found in the office and under forms at the bottom of this page) and return it to your child's teacher
