Without the WACO PTO, teachers and students would lose great support.  It is important that we keep PTO strong. We encourage parents to participate in any way that they can.    

The WACO PTO Mission Statement:
We believe in and will emphasize the importance of parents as partners and supporters in the education process. The PTO will work to promote and provide assistance in the areas of educational support; social events; fund-raising; district representation and parent involvement in the WACO Elementary School.
We are parents and teachers working together to better our school and community to ensure a safe, productive, and enjoyable environment for our children and their families to live and grow.
