Would you like to be a part of your child’s education but can’t volunteer during school hours because of work or young children still at home? Get involved in White Salmon Valley K-8 PTO!
Monthly PTO Meetings
2nd Tuesday of every month
Whitson Elementary Library
Free adult-supervised childcare provided for each meeting.
Attending monthly meetings is a fun way to meet K-8 parents and staff while learning about school curriculum, events, volunteer opportunities, and discussing ways to raise and spend PTO funds.
Who Are We?
The White Salmon Valley K-8 Parent Teacher Organization (WSV K-8 PTO) is a group of parents, teachers, and school staff who work together to enrich the education of students attending Whitson Elementary, Wallace & Priscilla Stevenson Intermediate School and Henkle Middle School.
