PTO – Parent Teacher Organization
St. Ambrose School is blessed with an active, committed parent-teacher organization. Parents generously contribute their time and varied talents, allowing us to provide many “extras” for our students. Working side-by-side, families form long-term friendships, resulting in a warm and welcoming school and parish community.
The PTO’s mission is to support the school’s philosophy and teachings by fostering academic excellence, healthy physical development, and Catholic morals and values for our children. Additionally, the PTO coordinates events that enhance the quality of the community. The Fun Run and Oktoberfest in the fall, the Gala and Auction in the winter, and the 5K Peace Run in the spring give us the chance to interact with other Saint Ambrose families and just have fun!

How does the PTO work?
Every family at St. Ambrose School is part of the PTO and it is the job of the PTO to support the faculty and parents throughout the school year through events and fundraising. Each family is asked to volunteer throughout the year to support these endeavors. The Pastor and Principal serve as ad hoc members of the volunteer-led PTO Executive Board. They meet monthly to make decisions about what social events to hold, how to raise money and how to support the school.
When are PTO Board meetings? Can anyone attend?
The board meets once a month on a Wednesday night at 7PM in the school library. Anyone can attend! Minutes will be posted on the school website so that everyone knows what has been discussed.
