The St. Paul Catholic School PTO promotes participation of parents, guardians, and teachers in the programs and activities of St. Paul Catholic School. All parents, guardians, and staff are encouraged to be active members of the PTO. The efforts of the PTO are primarily directed toward providing those things that contribute to the overall quality of education. The PTO assists by building community, coordinating parent volunteers, and raising money to provide programs, services and equipment to enhance the educational experience at St. Paul Catholic School.
