Bridges Public Charter School Parent Teacher Organization


The Bridges PTO's mission is to strengthen, enhance and encourage the educational and social environment of Bridges Public Charter School and to promote open communication and understanding between families and Bridges administration and staff. The PTO is an all-volunteer organization. All Bridges families, teachers and staff members are automatically members of the PTO and are encouraged to participate in PTO activities throughout the year, even if unable to attend monthly meetings.

The Bridges PTO uses its Statement of Purpose and Operating Procedures as a guide for conducting its business during PTO meetings and throughout the year.
