WELCOME BACK!

Hard to believe that summer has already come to an end! Even though we aren't physically returning to school, know that your South Park PTO has already been hard at work behind the scenes. We promise to help make this year the best it can be given the challenging situation that we are all facing! The PTO looks forward to creating a strong year as a community working together!


Sincerely,

PTO Directory & Membership

Step 1: Register with the website

If you are new to our school...Welcome!

Please register with the PTO website by creating a login and password.


Registration includes completing the Parent/Family and Student Information & Directory/Publish Preference forms (Assigned teacher information will be available on Family Access on 8/14/20)


The South Park PTO website is your one-stop PTO shop for membership dues/directory, announcements, spirit wear, volunteer opportunities, etc.


Step 2: Purchase the membership on August 14th

Buying the optional $25 membership for our PTO will allow you access to our mobile/online directory. It also helps fund items for the teachers and the school. This is a yearly subscription; if you were a member last year you will need to sign up again.


**For any families who may need financial assistance with the PTO membership, please contact Mrs. Faust.


With your child's class/teacher placement, log onto the PTO website to purchase the Membership/Household Directory.


Step 3: Download the Membership Toolkit App

Once you've purchased the Directory, download the "Membership Toolkit" App for free in either the Apple Store or in Google Play. To filter by grade or by teacher, click on the funnel icon in the upper right corner.


This app will be your "virtual" phone directory as well as give you the ability to receive PTO announcements. Being part of the PTO directory is the only way other parents have access to your contact information to schedule playdates, eLearning connections, and receive classroom information from the Room Parents.
