EVERY parent/guardian and teacher in the Bryant Montessori community is a member of the Bryant Montessori PTO!
The acronym PTO stands for Parent Teacher Organization. The Bryant Montessori PTO is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit that operates under its own bylaws and does not charge a membership fee.
The main difference between PTO and PTA is membership dues. As a PTO, we have decided as a group that we do not feel a need to collect from every parent/guardian. Rather, we want each member of our community to contribute whenever and with whatever they can, whether it be with a monetary donation or with volunteer time. If you can and want to volunteer, we would love it. There are volunteer forms in the main office you can fill out the next time you drop kids off or when you have a few minutes to drop in.
