Our PTO Philosophy

Coy's PTO is composed of caring parents, guardians, teachers, administrators, and students who take an active interest in the success of our school. Beyond the traditional purposes of providing financial and volunteer support to Coy, our PTO seeks to bring together and build our school community with wholesome, helpful, fun activities for all. PTO members strive to be forward thinking, and are open to new ideas and suggestions.

Teacher Appreciation Week – The first week of May, the PTO honors our teachers with various surprises and goodies.  Be on the look out for a Sign Up Genius link to help with donations.  We have some hard working teachers here at Coy and this is the time to show them how much we appreciate them!

Fairs and Bees – CMS holds various science and social studies fairs throughout the year, as well as geography and spelling bees. The PTO supports them by providing volunteers.

Board & Chair Positions – There are lots of jobs that help a PTO shine its best.  Some of these jobs require a year long commitment and others are a one time deal.  If you are looking for a bit more involvement in our school please look over our list of available positions and see if something strikes your fancy.  These volunteer opportunities look great on a resume or as public service on a yearly performance report.  We are fun and easy going bunch interested in bettering our school and supporting our students & teachers.
