Upper School Parent-Teacher League

Town & Country School

 TOWN AND COUNTRY UPPER SCHOOL PTL 

The Town and Country Upper School PTL would like to welcome all new and returning students and their families back to school!  We are looking forward to another great year and getting to know all of the new families.

The PTL is a league of parents and teachers at Town and Country School.   As Town and Country parents, we are here because we have children who learn differently.  The PTL's goal is to foster a nurturing and caring environment that strives for continued parent involvement in helping build a better educational setting for our kids.  We also promote a community where the teachers and administration can do their best work with the resources we can help provide.  Through our membership and fundraising efforts, the PTL provides educational materials and equipment for the school, as well as improvements to the facility.  We sponsor field trips, outside educational programs, and other fun opportunities that come up during the year.

We encourage you to support the US PTL by attending meetings and becoming involved.  Parents are required to volunteer a minimum of 10 hours a year.  You will be responsible for keeping track of those hours and turning them in to Tonya Stone (tstone@tandcschool.org).  Attending the PTL meetings, baking cookies or brownies, or helping during an event are great ways to meet this requirement and get to know the other parents and school staffIf you sign up to be a chair for an event, your volunteer hours are waived

Volunteer opportunities will be sent out via the Sign Up Genius website as activities present themselves. If you aren’t available for one activity others will come. Thank you for helping to make a difference!
