Will I have to volunteer a lot of my time?
Only if you want to! One of the great aspects of the PTO is that you may volunteer as much or as little as you like. Our monthly meetings are a great way to find out about different volunteer opportunities. Monthly PTO meetings are currently being held via Zoom on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6PM. 

What if I don’t know anyone on the PTO?
Don’t worry! The PTO is a great avenue for meeting other Holy Trinity parents and for getting to know the educators and the administration. The PTO parents are welcoming to anyone new to the organization. The meetings are also a great way to find out more about the PTO and what’s happening at Holy Trinity.

How do I become a member?
Actually, you already are! Every parent, teacher and all Holy Trinity administration are automatically a part of the PTO.

How do I contact the PTO?
We have an e-mail address that you can send direct inquiries to: pto.htschool@gmail.com. You can also look for information on Holy Trinity’s website or the PTO Facebook page

The Holy Trinity Catholic School Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is a parent-led organization which promotes cooperation between parents and teachers to further the education of our children. We accomplish this mission through monthly meetings and various fundraisers and service projects throughout the school year. Every parent, teacher, and administrator at Holy Trinity Catholic School is a member of the PTO. (The PTO was previously known at the Guild.)

Our Leadership Team

The PTO Leadership Team is made up of parents who have volunteered to serve as an officer or committee chair for the current school year. CLICK HERE for the current list of officers and committee chairs and their contact information.
