About the PTO

The Joseph Sims Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a volunteer organization made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. We work hard to help make the school year educational, enjoyable, and exciting. The purpose of our organization is to provide support for educational and recreational needs, to promote open communication between administrators, teachers and families, and to encourage school spirit and pride.
