The purpose of the Roberts Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is to bring about the broadest possible participation of the School community in working to: (a) create a better understanding of the learning process by encouraging communication between parents and teachers; (b) promote cooperation between family and the School in meeting the needs of children; (c) serve as a source of support for the School staff with volunteer and financial assistance; (d) cooperate with the School to support the improvement of education; (e) foster goodwill and support for the School in the community at large; (f) raise private funds to supplement the School’s budget.

We embrace the diversity of the Roberts community. We recognize everyone has a demanding schedule and competing priorities with a multitude of family, social, cultural, and work commitments. We would like to understand, “How the PTO can better meet your needs as a Roberts family wanting to be engaged in the School community?” To this end, please complete this 5-minute survey.
The more families participate in the survey, the more relevant the results. Please encourage your friends to complete it. Finally, please be patient with us as we evaluate the survey results to determine how we can best meet the needs of the community as a whole.
