Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) 



    PTO stands for Parent Teacher Organization. The  PTO is a nonprofit group comprised of parents, teachers, and staff dedicated to improving the educational experience of all students.  Our goals are to encourage interaction between family and school, serve as a source of support, and work with teachers, staff, and the community at large to improve our children’s educational experience. The PTO works closely with the school administration to meet this goal.

    About the SIC

    The Nursery Road Elementary School-Arts Magnet Improvement Council serves as an advisory committee to the principal and faculty. Unlike the PTO and other voluntary school organizations, the NRES-SIC is mandated by law. The NRES-SIC plays a key role in the education of our children by bringing together parents, teachers and community stakeholders to collaborate on the improvement of our school.

    “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”
