Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

The Heritage Academy PTO exists
  • to facilitate communications and cooperation between the home and the school;
  • to direct scholar activities outside the classroom; and,
  • to provide a forum for discussion for any student and school related issues.

Note: Volunteers are required to have a fingerprint clearance card.

To meet the purpose of the PTO, the PTO sponsors activities and projects, which always cost money. The primary source of fundraising is through PTO Dues.

PTO Dues are used for:

  • School Activities – Constitution Week, Movie Nights, Fall Festivals, etc.
  • Campus Projects – TBD by PTO
  • Academics, Arts, and Sports
  • Financial support for Computers, Software, Books, Equipment, etc.
  • Gifts – Staff Appreciation Gifts, Staff Appreciation Luncheons, etc.

Each household is only expected to pay $25 each year.  (This updated amount was affirmed by the school board in Summer 2023.) Please pay by clicking the button below and logging in to your My School Bucks account.

Other Fundraising:

Some of the activities the PTO sponsors are also used to raise funds for other activities or projects.  However, the PTO tries to keep the costs as low as possible, to make the activities and projects as accessible as possible.

A passive form of fundraising is through Fry’s Community Rewards and Amazon Smiles.
