The PTO meets the second Monday of every month at 6:30pm in the media room.

What's the difference between PTO and ASB?


Both ASB and PTO are equally important. Some Basic differences between ASB and PTO... 


The Associated Student Body (ASB) specifically links to the schools, and follows the rules and guidelines issued by the school district.  All fees affiliated with the school will applied toward the ASB account. as well as sports, clubs, class and labs fees.  There are specific guidelines for what the ASB funds can and can not be used for.  ASB funds are recorded with the district and must adhere to district guidelines for disbursement. 

PTO's primary objective, should be to support the school and its students.  If the ASB guidelines prevent them from purchasing classroom items a teacher needs/wants, the teacher can apply for a grant through the PTO who has the discretion to use their funds for such a request.

 Some of the recent purchases include a new projector screen for presentations, white board markers, science equipment.  Additionally, PTO grants over $5000 each year.


PTO committee members are voted on annually.  Shahala PTO operates as a non-profit with By-laws and required monthly meetings.  Everyone is invited to attend PTO meetings and any time or assistance that can be provided is greatly appreciated.
