The Freedom Trail Elementary Parent Teacher Organization’s mission is to enhance the educational opportunities for our students, and to promote positive community spirit among students, families, and staff. We encourage you to be as active as possible - together we can create lasting memories for our children.
PTO Myths Debunked!
Myth: I have to apply and pay dues to be part of PTO.
Fact: If you have a child that attends Freedom Trail, you automatically belong to the PTO! There are no dues, membership fees, or forms to fill out.
Myth: I’m just too busy to help.
Fact: We are all juggling life. The fact is that when you volunteer, you decide your time commitment. You will not be sucked into a black hole of volunteering. We understand your time is valuable but we cannot do it alone. Even an hour helps. You can find current volunteer opportunities and sign up anytime on our website.
Myth: The PTO has all the help it needs. My participation will not make a difference.
Fact: This is the biggest myth of all! This year we have really struggled to get volunteers and we don’t know if we will be able to keep all of our events going next year. We want and need your participation, otherwise activities will have to be canceled moving forward. We love FTES and know you do too so please help us continue to provide the enriching activities our children look forward to.
