Welcome To MOT Charter K-8 Academy PTO!

The PTO was established to promote the welfare, growth and education of children, parents, teachers, staff and community at MOT Charter K-8 Academy. To reach that goal each year, the PTO sponsors projects and events that will improve the educational opportunities of the school’s community. 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.

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.

MOT Charter School collects Box Tops and Labels for Education all year long.  If you have any to donate, send them in to school with your child or drop them in the collection bin in the front office.  In order to make sorting and submission a little easier for our volunteers and coordinator, please take a minute to ensure that your boxtops have not expired.  Please also try to clip as close to the dotted line as possible.

You can also earn boxtops by shopping online.  Simply register at BoxTops4Education and select the shop and earn tab.  Your everyday online purchases can add up to direct donations to MOT Charter School.

The money the PTO has raised through the boxtop campaign has raised $7500 and helped the school purchase playground equipment and improvements.  Every little bit helps and and we greatly appreciate your support!

We have collected over 4300 Labels for Education which are also used for playground and recess equipment.  Additionally, we have earned 20 bonus books for our library! Great Work!  Keep on clipping!
