"Why volunteer for the SVdP PTO?"
The SVdP PTO's history is almost as long as SVdP School. The Mothers' Club was formed during the first school year in order to obtain enough gas ration stamps for the cars and buses needed to transport students to and from school. The Mothers' Club eventually developed into the PTO, and the organization continues the tradition of supporting SVdP School via events and services.
View the 2016-17 PTO Funding Report, for more information.
The SVdP PTO is a highly functional mix of new and experienced volunteers. It seems clear that the habitual volunteers have found joy in giving, and that volunteering fulfills them emotionally and spiritually. On top of that fulfillment, volunteering offers a tremendous opportunity to meet new friends - those whose children are in other grades and who we may not otherwise meet.
