About the PTO

We are happy to welcome students, parents and staff members to the 2013/2014 school year at Rippowam International Baccalaureate Middle School. Your Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is already planning fun and educational activities to support you and your students’ social and learning environment. Our PTO’s mission is to promote the welfare of our children by securing quality academic, physical, and social education, and promote an environment of cooperation between parents and teachers where our staff can do their best work and our students do their best learning.

Every parent/guardian and teacher is already a member of our PTO. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education have better grades and fewer discipline problems. Working with our PTO lets you impact hundreds of lives – including the one’s closest to your heart. We know your time is valuable and promise that the time you give to your PTO and Rippowam will be worth your while – AND FUN!!
