Village Wide PTO

Our mission, as a Village-Wide Parent-Teacher Organization, is to advance the welfare of our children in the school community and to promote a closer, collaborative relationship among home, school, and the community at large.
We endeavor to enhance communication, participation, cooperation, and to foster innovation among the various parent-teacher associations/organizations and those they represent, the Wilmette Education Association, the District 39 Administration and the Board of Education.
Parents are encouraged to get involved through numerous volunteer opportunities.
