The PTO works to enhance the lives of our students, teachers, and administrative teams at Rushing Middle School, as well as to promote a sense of community within our students and families, teachers, and administration.
WHAT IS THE PTO?
Our Parent Teacher Organization is a formal nonprofit organization that consists of parents, school administration, teachers, staff, and community members. The organization's goals may vary, but essentially our PTO's goals include volunteerism of parents, encouragement of teachers and students, community involvement, and welfare of students and families.
WHAT ARE PTO FUNDS?
The PTO raises money to assist learning and fun at Rushing Middle School. Support provided varies from monetary support for curriculum, supplies, school equipment (inside and out), and technology, to volunteer efforts, school events, community support and staff appreciation.
