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.
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
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.
