Tolland Elementary PTO


Our mission is to create the kind of school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work – and so can our children. We provide support for teachers in and out of the classroom.

We provide resources the teachers need and help create learning opportunities for children. TEPTO Fundraising supports assemblies, field trips, library books, and much more.

It’s about TEAMWORK.  Between parents, staff and students – we can make a difference!

It’s about COMMUNITY – not just fundraising!   We do raise money for the schools, but that is not all we do……it’s also about getting families together.  We all have a common bond, and our number one goal is to get more parents connected to the schools.
