Parent Teacher Organization

What is the Gatewood PTO?

Every Gatewood family is a member of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).

Welcome to the Gatewood Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)!  We are a group of dedicated, energized, fun parents committed to enriching the educational experience of all students at Gatewood. 

What We Do:

  • Raise funds to supply our classrooms with state-of-the-art technology and supplement the classroom curriculum with art/music programs and relevant fieldtrips.
  • Build community and school spirit through fun school-wide events.
  • Support teachers and staff by connecting volunteers with classroom and school needs.

We need YOU! Make a commitment to get involved in your child's education this year.  PTO is your organization -- we invite you to join us in making this a great year! To find out how you can get involved, contact any of our PTO board members listed below:
