PTO Membership and New School Directory App-A to Z Directories

Our yearly membership fee is $10 per family and includes a directory. Please make checks payable to Pope PTO, attach payment to the PTO Membership form (which can be found on the app under Documents or on our PTO website www.popepto.org under Important Links), and return it to the front desk at Pope.


Every teacher who has 100% paid PTO Membership by September 18 in their class receives $100 of Scholastic Books for their classroom.


In an effort to create an accurate and timely directory, we are using a web based system to allow parents to verify/edit their own directory listings. Verifying your directory data should not take more than five minutes. Once you have paid your PTO membership you will automatically be enrolled in our online directory.


You will receive an email from PTO Membership to update and verify your information. If you have not received the email, please contact Kristen Ruiz at popePTOmembership@gmail.com.


Once you have completed verifying your data, you can access the school directory app at www.atozdirectories.com/m.

Science Resource Committee (SRC) is Looking for Volunteers

Have you ever seen a chinchilla or a bearded dragon? Want to put on a CSI demonstration for the 5th graders? Go on the nature trails field trip? Do you know what a caecilian is? If anything like this interests you, then the Science Resource Team is for you!!!


We put on 2-3 demos per year for every grade. Some of these have live animals like guinea pigs and toads. Others, if you are not an animal enthusiast, have skeletons and mounted bird skins. We are looking for volunteers to hold animals, speak in front of kids, and to run the slide shows. You don't do it all - just pick what you like. Any class, any grade, and any level of involvement would be a huge help to us and the kids. (p.s. ask the kids about the 3rd grade "amphibians" demo to learn what a caecilian is).


Email popePTOsrc@gmail.com for more information on how to get involved.
