JSE-PTO

Jersey Shore Elementary School PTO The Jersey Shore Elementary School Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) would like to welcome all new and returning students and families to the upcoming school year. The JSE PTO does A LOT to make our school a great place for our kids! To find out more information come join us at our monthly meetings!  We even provide childcare for free!

The JSE PTO is an independent organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who support and enhance the educational experiences of the school’s students by:

1.  Providing an organization through which the parents, school, and teachers can work cooperatively;

2.  Providing financial support for programs funded outside of the annual school budget. JSE PTO raises money through several fundraisers throughout the year.

These funds are used for programs, events, and items that directly benefit the students of the school; with the exception of showing our JSE staff our appreciation by serving them a luncheon and breakfast.


Jersey Shore Elementary PTO – Membership

If you are interested in becoming a member of the JSE PTO, please fill out the PTO Membership form.  In order to become a member you must be a parent or guardian of a student at JSE, the Principal/Assistant Principal, or any teacher currently employed at JSE.  The cost is only $1.00 per person.  Joining JSE PTO does not “sign you up” for anything,  but your membership alone will give us a BIGGER voice in our school and community.  Budget, programs, school events, and volunteer opportunities will be discussed at monthly meetings.
