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!
