About Us

As a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization, the New Garden Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is an active parent group designed to help enhance your child’s educational experience at New Garden Elementary by supporting educational programs and extra-curricular activities, providing learning technologies and equipment, building communication channels between home and school, and fostering community among teachers, parents, and students.

Who We Are and What We Do

The New Garden PTO is an active parent group focused on enhancing the educational experience at New Garden Elementary.  We support educational programs and extra-curricular activities to build community at our school and enrich the learning environment.

 Our dedicated parents volunteer their time to provide events such as Breakfast with Buddy, the Spring Talent Show, a Fall and Spring book fair, and more.  Our parent donations fund many important school programs, including school assemblies, an annual writer’s workshop, and field trips.

The New Garden PTO welcomes your involvement!

Our Guiding Principles

  • We exist to serve the New Garden Elementary School students,
    parents, and teachers.
  • Our committee chairs and volunteers are valued for their
    contributions.  They are empowered and supported by the PTO
    Board through clearly communicated outcomes and goals, board-
    level support, and ample room for creativity in their endeavors.
  • We provide clear communications to parents, students and
    teachers through a comprehensive, entertaining, and relevant
    website that we maintain.
  • Our focus on fundraising is to grow funds to help the school
    and teachers with the technology, learning aids, and
    enrichment programs that they need to increase the knowledge
    and skills of the students.
  • We make fund-raising easy and meaningful for New Garden
    families through our direct giving campaign, Market Day and
    special sales at PTO events.
  • We promote a sense of community within the school – for
    students, parents, teachers and staff, through family fun and
    other school events.  We believe in and help foster school spirit.
  • We work together to achieve our goals. And, we have fun doing
