Volunteering through the PTO

The Parent Teacher Organization at Ball Charter is comprised of people just like you. We are parents, teachers and staff who strongly believe that our commitment of time and energy provides a positive learning environment for our students. Being involved in PTO means meeting other parents, volunteering your time to improve your child's education, planning community events and discussing ideas, issues and accomplishments that will affect your child's educational experience. Time after time, studies have shown that when parents get involved, children are more likely to:

* be more positive in their attitude toward school.
* have better social skills.
* show improved behavior.
* complete homework assignments.
* earn better grades.
* score higher on tests.
* graduate and continue their education.

Please join us and help make a difference in your child's school and education!
