PTO Overview

  • What is the PTO?

    The PTO is us!  The amazing parents and teachers at Encinal make up Encinal School’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  We are volunteers who strive to build a strong sense of community at Encinal and provide enriching programs that extend the curriculum of the Menlo Park City School District. By joining the PTO, you become part of the network of parents and teachers who are working to enhance all our children’s educational experience and social developmnet. We are committed to supporting the children, parents, teachers, staff, and programming that all make Encinal excellent!

    Funds to support all PTO-sponsored programs and purchases are generated through membership dues and through parent-coordinated fundraisers.
