Whitehead PTO Mission Statement
The relationships within the Whitehead Elementary community, which includes students, staff, parents, and community members, are a vital influence on the success of our children's futures. Therefore, our purpose is to foster a sense of support, pride, and enthusiasm for education. Through fundraising, and family activities, we will promote positive school/community relationships that enhance our children's educational environment.

PTO Essential Outcomes
  • Instill the belief that education is the collective responsibility of parents, teachers, students, and the community
  • Build relationships based on integrity, trust, and respect
  • Increase communication, participation, and governance (voice) of all stakeholders
  • Build leadership capacity of all stakeholders​
  • "The more parents participate in schooling, in a sustained way, at every level- in advocacy, decision-making and oversight roles, as fundraisers, and boosters, as volunteers and paraprofessionals, and as home teachers- the better for student achievement" Williams, D.L. & Chavkin, N.F. (1989)
