PTO Mission

Welcome! The purpose of the Portola Valley Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is to promote and support the education and welfare of the students in the Portola Valley School District and to strengthen the relationship between home and school by facilitating communication and encouraging cooperation among parents, teachers, administrators, the school board and the community.  All parents or legal guardians of students who currently attend Ormondale School or Corte Madera School and all current faculty and staff of the PVSD are members in the organization.
