Our organization strives to strengthen our children’s education and development through a collaborative effort of parents, educators, and the community. The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) plans and sponsors numerous activities throughout the year. Through our fundraising and service efforts, we support projects that benefit our students. New this year, we will be accepting cash donations alongside volunteer efforts. Donations are tax deductible as the Roland-Story PTO is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

During the 2016-2017 school year, PTO allocated over $37,000 to the elementary and middle school, fulfilling requests for the following items: exercise balls, kore wobble chairs, field trips,  Phonemic Awareness, reading comprehension aides, greenhouse shelving, books, Time magazine subscriptions for students, and classroom supplies.
