What is the PTO?

The Parent Teacher Organization is YOU! Parents, guardians, and teachers of HW Harkness Elementary School.  The primary purpose of the PTO is to form a strong and nurturing community around Harkness students and to support the educational and enrichment goals of the school. In order to achieve our goals a large part of this group is fundraising.


What does the PTO do?

Our main focus is providing enrichment programs for the students and parents, as well as, to provide support for the teachers and staff at HW Harkness Elementary School.


Here are some ways PTO enriches your child’s life:

  • Art and craft opportunities
  • School festivals/events
  • Fun, interesting, and informative assemblies
  • Technology support
  • Field trip support
  • Site improvement
  • Classroom and janitorial supplies

I don’t have time to get involved

You can pick the level of involvement that meets your schedule and needs. It doesn’t take much to make a difference.
