PTO

Stella Schola PTO is a parent/teacher organization created in support of Stella Schola Middle School, a small public school in the Lake Washington School District.

Current PTO Advisory Committee:
President:  Stacy Anderson
Vice President:  Anita Yue
Treasurer:  Julian Selman
Vice Treasurer: Nancy Yim
Secretary: Pascale Kellens
 

The Stella Schola Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is organized exclusively for educational purposes in support of our children and their teachers. All parents of Stella Schola students are automatically part of the PTO.  The PTO is a 501c3 organization so all donations to the PTO are tax deductible.

The PTO assists staff by purchasing materials to enrich the learning environment by providing funds to purchase classroom materials (science supplies, novel sets, supplies for special projects, environmental projects, out-of-classroom field experiences, etc).

The PTO supports Stella Schola Middle School students by providing financial assistance for students who cannot afford to go on field trips and by providing enriching opportunities for students.

The PTO also supports Stella by sponsoring field trips, family social events (potlucks, dances, student socials, swim get-together, ski club, staff appreciation, etc) and extracurricular school activities.
