We, the PTO Executive Board, are proud of our school and its commitment to our children's total educational experience. We extend an open invitation to you and your families to participate and share in the many functions and special activities that we have each year.
As a parent of a Gearing student, you are automatically a member of the Gearing PTO. It's because of our parent's dedication that these activities are possible. Please plan to join us at our meetings. Childcare is provided at no cost to you. We are always open for new ideas. We look forward to your active involvement.
The Milton J. Gearing Parent Teacher Organization would like to take this opportunity to share with you some of the many programs and activities the PTO provides to the staff, students, and families of Gearing Elementary School. Take a moment to read about some of our most popular programs and activities.
