PTO » Overview


Dear Parents, The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) would like to welcome you to Benchmark School.  We are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers and administrators who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children.  The PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents! We encourage you to join our organization and get involved with all the family events we sponsor.


PTO meetings are the first Tuesday of each month starting in August and ending in May (excluding December). The meetings are held in the Benchmark Library at 5:30 pm and usually last one hour. We discuss upcoming events, possible new fundraisers and share ideas to better serve the Benchmark community.  This is a wonderful way to meet some great families and stay informed with school events.


The PTO believes that it is our responsibility to do everything we can to enhance the learning environment for our children. They are our future and worth your time investment! 

There are numerous short-term or long-term volunteer opportunities throughout the school year. The amount of time you donate is flexible and can be made to fit into your daily life. We look forward to having you join. Get involved and stay in the know.
