ABOUT THE COVINGTON PTO

The Covington PTO is a volunteer run organization at Covington School. PTO stands for Parent Teacher Organization.  We are a group of parents, grandparents, family, friends and guardians of Covington School students.  The PTO creates a link between students, teachers and families.  You and your support make it possible for the PTO to sponsor various events at the school and provide much needed contributions to our school.

Why Join the Covington PTO?

Joining the Covington PTO shows an interest in your child’s education and school activities.  Joining is a great way to show support for the teachers too. Active membership strengthens the relationships between parents and school.

Membership offers parents many opportunities to help make positive changes in the school, such as funding automatic filtered water fountains, new PE Equipment, games for recess, and library books.
