Dear Charlestown Families and Staff,

Your PTO welcomes you to the 2021-22 school year! 
Through the efforts of the PTO, our students are afforded many educational programs such as field trips, assemblies, visiting authors, outside artists and science fair. We sponsor CT community events throughout the year like the Halloween Parade, Spring Fair, and Field Day. The PTO also offers support to the school and its staff and disseminates vital information  to the Charlestown Elementary parent population. In addition, the PTO contributes to the community via scholarships and through donations of financial resources to educational and cultural programs, the district dental clinic and community outreach opportunities.
We are able to provide all of these programs and activities due to the efforts of our wonderful volunteers! Please consider volunteering in the  classroom or on one of our many committees. Every volunteer has a  gift to share. The gift of time is most appreciated and the children benefit from having a strong home and school partnership.
On this website you will find a list of all PTO supported  activities, events, and fundraisers. You will also find  a list of our Committee Chairpersons, a copy of our bylaws, and our mission statement.


Our executive board is committed to complimenting the quality of education for our children. With your help, we can enhance the environment in which our children learn and grow. Please feel free to contact  any of the executive board members and committee chairpersons with your thoughts, comments, concerns and most importantly, your willingness to volunteer throughout the year.


Together, we can make a difference!
