St. John’s Lutheran PTO Overview

“Making a difference….together!”

Who We Are & What We Do

Our goal is to encourage and foster a strong relationship between our school, the home, and the church so that parents and teachers can effectively work together in communicating, educating, and financially supporting the best possible Christian education for our kids.

PTO is made up of a group of dedicated, hard-working, positive parents. Our PTO is you! The group is open to all St. John’s Lombard parents and we welcome and encourage everyone’s participation. There are so many ways to be involved in PTO and we are always seeking volunteers. From chairing or co-chairing a committee, to just helping out, there’s tons to get involved with.

Our PTO is comprised of an Executive Board and 8 sub-committees:

  1. EIBT (Eagle Invitational Basketball Tournament)
  2. Gingerbread House
  3. Box Tops for Education Program
  4. Room Moms
  5. Grandparents’ Day
  6. Teacher Appreciation Week
  7. Fundraising/Special Events
  8. Dine & Donate Program
