The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is funded and run by Temple Beth Sholom Innovative School parents. It is perhaps the single best way to become involved in your child’s school. The PTO is an open forum for any parent who would like to be involved. The level of commitment is up to you!  JOIN NOW!


Volunteer for an Event

  • We have many events throughout the year. Be on the lookout for emails on how to sign up to volunteer.

Attend a PTO meeting

  • Let your voice be heard. Attend as many as you are able to. No commitment necessary. Meeting information can be found on this page.

SCHOOL t-shirts

Each school year the PTO sells t-shirts that the children are able to wear anytime especially on Shabbat (Friday’s). Each initial T-shirt is $36 and the funds help support the PTO. Additional T-shirts are sold for $18. The cost of your T-Shirt covers your annual PTO dues too!
