The Sycamore High School PTO exists to support our students and school staff, and to make SHS an even better place to learn and to teach. The group invested over $5,000 in project grants to support the innovative ideas of staff members and student organizations last year, and an additional $25,000 to a help purchase new tables/chairs for the commons over the past two years. SHS PTO also partners with the other PTO groups in the Sycamore district to award four scholarships each year. The PTO works with our counselors to be there for Sycamore students and families in hard times. Best of all, the PTO can facilitate connections between staff members in need of volunteers with particular expertise, and parent volunteers who are willing to share their time, their talents and their experience.
