Welcome to the Loring PTO!
When your family joins the Loring School community, you become a part of the Loring PTO; a community of parents, teachers and school administrators joining together to enrich the educational and social experience of our students.
Parent involvement is critical to our success and there are a number of ways to get involved, taking on a leadership role, volunteering at one of our events, donating to our fundraising efforts. If you are interested in learning more about the different opportunities available please email our co-chairs Deb Cooley and Erin Ciaccia.
20th Anniversary Leopard Fund
Science Fair 2020 is in full swing!
2/12/2020 7:00 pm
We kicked off this year's Science Fair at Community Celebration to get the kids excited about all of the fun ways they can be scientists and explore whatever ideas they're inspired by. Registration and t-shirt orders are live now and can be found here, where you'll also find some suggestions on topics and how to get started. This is a time for students to embrace science that excites them, it is not competitive, and all students will receive a small prize and have the chance to present their project to a guest "scientist". We hope you'll join us for this fun event the evening of March 26th. If you have questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Wendy Puryear.Read More
