Parent/Teacher Organization

The SMHS Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO) is a vital part of the school’s success and requires active involvement by our parents. The PTO plans activities throughout the school year, and supports the school by playing host to school sponsored events. The PTO contributes to the school financially through fundraising activities.
