Welcome To MOT Charter High School PTO!

The MOT Charter School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is organized exclusively to support the educational activities and facilities of the MOT Charter High School. All parents or guardians of MOT Charter students, teachers and staff of the school are automatically members of the MOT PTO and are encouraged to participate in the PTO activities. The PTO hosts various fundraising activities throughout the year to raise money to support the school, students and teachers. Other fun activities are also hosted by the PTO to support and encourage a sense of community throughout our school.

For the PTO to be effective and represent the school, everyone’s participation is essential. We thank you in advance for taking your time to volunteer at MOT Charter School – to volunteer for an upcoming event, please click the VolunteerSpot link above.
