Charger Parent Teacher Organization (CPTO)

Use our quick online form to let us know how you would like to help!

The objectives of St. Patrick Catholic School's CPTO (Charger Parent Teacher Organization) are to foster communication between parents, students, and faculty and to encourage parental involvement in school activities. We plan fun social events for students and parents and raise money for technology and other needs.

All parents or guardians of registered students should consider themselves members of CPTO. All are welcome and encouraged to volunteer in whatever capacity their schedules permit. You may sign up to help online using the link at the bottom of the page—you may choose to chair a committee or just to help out for a couple of hours!

CPTO meets several times a year, as needed, in the multi-purpose room. Meetings are a great way to find out what is going on at school and share your ideas. You can learn about upcoming events and meet other parents. CPTO officers are elected and serve a two-year term.

Being from a small town, I grew up in a small school with small class sizes and I wanted my children to have the same experience/attention. St. Patrick’s school has been great for my kids. The smaller class sizes give them much more individual attention from the teachers than larger schools. I also really like the values that the kids learn that I don’t feel is taught at public schools. St.Patrick’s kids have more compassion and family values.
