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.

Join and have fun meeting other like-minded people, who care about Covington School.

Please join us at our next PTO meeting.  Meetings are held in the Covington School teacher’s lounge.  We gather to discuss upcoming PTO event ideas and plans. Never been to a PTO meeting? That’s ok! We all had to make that first step at one point, and we know how daunting it can be. Don’t be discouraged, we welcome new faces always!  See dates below…


On late start days. Classes start one hour later. Busses will pick up students one hour later for those that ride. Typically, these late start days are scheduled once a month, on a Wednesday; however, some months do not have one at all.

If you see an upcoming event that you would like to participate in, just let us know. We could always use extra hands and the students love seeing familiar faces in the hallways. Email the PTO today!
