PTO Year at a Glance

The Greens Prairie PTO and staff have a wonderful partnership with the focus on the success of our students. The learning environment is positively enriched by the PTO. What an awesome tradition that has been established for our first seven years! It is a priority of the PTO and the staff that funds raised go right back into the classroom for our students. We want to be good stewards of the funds raised with our goals in mind for our students. Below is an update of the budget and funds spent our first seven years. Thank you to our parents for your continued support through the years. It is magnificent to be a Mustang!
