About the PTO

Welcome to our PTO page.


Check in with us often as we endeavor to keep you up to date on all the PTO going ons.

The PTO is a group of parents and teachers working together to assist our school in providing our children, families and community with an enthusiastic, high-quality, thorough and positive educational experience. We support our school through a variety of fund raising activities and family oriented events throughout the year. Additionally, from time to time, we may provide support to other groups within our school system to help them achieve their individual goals. Community focus is also important and incorporated into our activities when possible.

 The PTO is looking for new ideas and volunteers to assist in the many projects we undertake during the year. We are looking for volunteers in every aspect, from baking to commitments on an event by event basis, or even an hour or two a year! 

If you are interested in being a part of this team, please contact us at straffordpto@strafford.k12.nh.us You can also attend our meetings. The dates are in our calendar. This is an open meeting so even if you can't commit to each month, any time you can share with us is appreciated and makes a difference!

It takes many volunteers to make these programs successful.

We hope that you will help us make this year another great year in Strafford!


The Strafford PTO exists to promote the welfare of our children at home, at school and in the community.  Our goal is to facilitate parents and teachers working together in the educational process, as well as providing support, as we are able, based on our fundraising efforts.  

The PTO raises money for classroom supplies per teachers' requests, purchasing school equipment, and providing enrichment assemblies.  We also strive to support school wide field trips, 6th grade Camp Merrowvista, 8th grade graduation gifts, Destination Imagination, and much more!  In addition, the PTO puts on the Kindergarten Ice Cream Social, Pumpkin Hollow, the Shopping Spree, the Christmas Craft Fair, and Field Day.  We conclude the year with a week long Teacher Appreciation Celebration.

Our goal in the 2015-2016 school year is to increase our membership to form a cohesive network of engaged, committed individuals.  We understand that not everyone has the same resources, but everyone has something to offer! Volunteers are welcome to help with fundraising, baking or helping out with the many activities we offer throughout the school year! We can't do what we do without YOU!

We look forward to working together!
