On behalf of the Pin Oak PTO, I want to welcome our new and returning families to the new school year. We’re excited about all that is happening at Pin Oak!
Over the summer, upgrades to the school’s wireless network were completed. The PTO purchased four carts of Ipads — very shortly we will have one working cart in each house! Our ultimate goal is to have one cart per cluster, but we are excited to see the interactive learning these first carts will bring to our classrooms!
As a PTO, our mission is to support the students, staff and administration of our school. Last year we purchased classroom technology, books, supplies, musical instruments, gym and athletic equipment. We helped revamp the choir room and paint areas of the building that were showing their age. We supported robotics, fine arts, performing arts, athletic teams and so much more. In fact, there’s hardly an activity or classroom that hasn’t been impacted by the PTO!
On top of that, we have an active teacher appreciation committee, put on several major events each year, run a store and give of time and energy where ever and whenever we are needed.
This is all possible because collectively we are stronger than we are individually. By joining the PTO and choosing to support us financially at a higher level, you help ensure that our students continue to have these amazing academic, athletic, and artistic enrichment opportunities.
Pin Oak PTO is a 501(c)3 organization and all contributions are tax deductible to the extent permissible by law. We have an all-volunteer board and a commitment to keeping our overhead low. We put our donor’s contributions back to work in the school as you would want us to do. By supporting the PTO you help create a positive environment, not just your own child but for 1,199 other children.

Here’s to a great school year!
