The STM Parent Teacher Organization is designed to provide a forum of exchange for parents and staff on matters of mutual interests. The primary purpose of the PTO is to facilitate communication between families, faculty and administration of St. Thomas More School. The PTO is comprised of all parents and guardians, pastor, principals and staff, room parents and Executive Committee Members.
The PTO Executive Committee is comprised of the Principals, a staff representative, a Chairperson, Secretary, and Committee Members. Members will act in an advisory capacity on concerns, comments and suggestions pertaining to STM events, planning, and goals. The Executive Committee also enhances and facilitates support, participation and awareness from Parishioners, Alhambra residents and businesses.
The Principals select a Chairperson and Secretary. These positions are usually filled by parents who have served as a PTO Committee Member during the previous year and are active parents at STM. Appointed parents/guardians will act as PTO Representatives to all of the families of STM and for sponsored events.
PTO Meetings are usually held on the third Wednesday of every month. All parents, guardians and staff are invited and strongly encouraged to attend the PTO meetings. An agenda is followed which includes a discussion period. If unable to attend a meeting, you are welcome to submit a discussion item by calling the PTO Chairperson. The day-to-day operation of the school is the responsibility of the principals. All of us working together provide the teamwork necessary to support the on going success of our Catholic School Education at St. Thomas More School.
