About the PTO

The Pine Grove School PTO is a volunteer organization made up of parents, guardians, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are dedicated to promoting the education of all Pine Grove students.

PGS PTO supports Pine Grove through fundraising, volunteerism, programs, scholarships and events. Our goal is to help Pine Grove foster a safe, caring learning environment that embraces all cultures and addresses students’ social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs. PGS PTO further strides to support and enrich our children’s educational opportunities so that every child can reach his or her academic and creative potential.
