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.
