Dr. An Wang Middle School PTO
Welcome to Wang PTO! The PTO is a combination of parents and teachers working together. Our goal is to make our school a great place where students thrive! We meet one evening per month to discuss the needs of our school.
The money we raise through fundraising goes right back to the students in the form of technology, field trips, sports equipment, spirit wear, after-school activities, scholarships, etc.
There are lots of reasons to become a PTO member, in particular helping the students and working to create a better school community. But there’s more to it than that. Here’s a look at some of the key ways parents make a difference, and some specific ways you can have the most impact.
Decades of research have shown that when parents are involved in their children’s education, kids are more likely to:
- Earn better grades
- Score higher on tests
- Attend school regularly
- Have better social skills
- Show improved behavior
- Be more positive in their attitude toward school
- Complete homework assignments
- Graduate and continue their education
