About the PTO

Our Mission

The mission of the Chief PTO is to positively impact, support, and enhance the overall learning environment at Cherokee Bend School. As part of this mission, we seek to strengthen the relationship between home and school.


The Chief PTO has three basic roles

1. Fundraising and budget allocation  

2. Community-building and volunteerism

3. Program enhancement by sponsorship of school programs, events, services and communications
