Each of our schools benefit from an active parent-teacher organization, a rarity in urban public schools. Our school community throws many events throughout the school year including providing a safe space for young students to trick or treat (“Trick or Trunk”), a mini-Mardi Gras parade to recognize outstanding students (our “Krewe of Hoo”), and an occasional sock hop.  In addition our PTO raises a limited amount of money through fundraising efforts.  

Parents can also volunteer in classrooms, contact your school office to inquire.
