Parent-Teacher Organization

Gilbert Parent Teacher Organization

The purpose of our organization is to promote open communication among parents, teachers, administrators and to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs. We function strictly through the help of volunteers and on the budget established by our fundraising efforts.

We also encourage you to get involved! We sponsor many activities that allow parents to give of their time and talents as little or as much as they like. Many hands make light work! Click on Volunteer Opportunities to learn more!

PTO Officers

Looking for a way to give back to Gilbert? Consider becoming a PTO officer! It is a great way to get involved with the school and to meet wonderful volunteers in the district. Email us if you are interested in hearing more.

PTO Monthly Meetings

All are welcome to join any and all meetings.  We meet the first Monday of every month at Gilbert Middle School.
