"At my old school," says Rebecca McClure, a fifth grade English teacher, "only a couple parents showed up to a back to school night. Here, we see more than 50 for each PTO meeting." The school hosts monthly events for parents, and the PTO has given the school major boosts, raising the funds for a whole new computer lab. Mr. D recalls that when the PTO pitched him on a fundraising Fall Festival, "I'll admit I was skeptical. But it's just exploded. The rain forced it inside almost every year, but this year our parents raised more than $20,000."
