Parent Organization

Thank you for visiting the Southern Bluffs PTO site!

The Southern Bluffs PTO is a volunteer organization that supports the school by providing volunteers for various programs and by providing financial assistance for various school programs, field trips, equipment and supplies not otherwise available through school funds. We hope to promote pride in our school and encourage positive family involvement. Activities that we plan provide opportunities for students and families to participate together. All parent/guardians of Southern Bluffs students are automatically members of the Southern Bluffs PTO. No registration or payment of dues is required. Meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. on the third Monday of each month during the school year (unless otherwise noted). We have many ways that you can be involved, just ask! Ideas are always welcome. Together we accomplish more.

We are very excited about the 2023-24 school year. Fun things already in the works include the Holiday Fair, field trips, and classroom supplies. Please come to the meetings to see how you can be a part of the fun.
