The Griswold High School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a non-profit organization that exists for charitable, educational and scientific purposes, including the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and incorporated in the State of Connecticut.
The purpose of the PTO is to enhance and support the educational experience at Griswold High School, to develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parental involvement, and to improve the environment at Griswold High School through volunteer and financial support.
The GHS PTO started up again in 2019 after a 20-year hiatus. Please join us for a meeting and make your mark!
Who can join the PTO?
Parents/Guardians of a GHS Student, GHS Staff, and Griswold Community Members are welcome to join. There are no membership dues.
The Parent/Teacher Organization is a great way to make friends and become more involved with your child’s school community! There are many great opportunities for you and your family to get involved.
When does the PTO meet?
We meet once per month on the second Thursday of each month, unless otherwise noted. Meeting times are 5:00 p.m. Attend virtually on Google Meet! Links are shared on the GHS PTO website and Facebook page.
What does the PTO do at GHS?
The GHS PTO directly helps students, teachers, and the school with fundraiser events such as free dinner for all teachers on conference days, the Winter Ball in January, hot chocolate/sweet treat bar for Homecoming, and concessions for the Powder Puff football game, as well as financial support like funding two $500 scholarships at senior awards night.
The PTO works with various stakeholders to identify additional ways we can help both with volunteers and financially. There are several fundraisers held throughout the course of the year that impact the projects we facilitate and fund.
