“At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of the parents.” – Jane D. Hull
The Channahon PTO consists of parents, teachers and principals that all have one common interest, the kids. We work hard to enhance the social and educational environment of our schools. We purchase items for the schools that enhance educational experiences as well as provide funds for different assemblies and events throughout the year. There are many wonderful opportunities to become involved with the PTO. We invite you to come check out the many programs that benefit our children. Our meetings are always open to everyone, and we encourage you to come join us on the 2nd Thursday of the month. Also, please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or suggestions and “like” our Facebook page.
