Our school is blessed with an active Parent Teacher Organization. The group consists of volunteer parents, teachers and administrators from each of our three campuses. They work together to create a wide variety of events that benefit all of our students.
PTO helps in our school lunchrooms and libraries, we organize holiday parties and educational events, and we have a special focus on conducting fundraising activities that underwrite the cost of spring field trips for every student in every grade. In past years,our PTO groups helped finance class field trips to the Pittsburgh Zoo, the Carnegie Museums and Science Center, Idlewild Park, Cresson Lake and Mountain Playhouse, Horseshoe Curve , and so much more.
We’re looking forward to a happy and exciting 2017-2018 school year, and we urge as many parents and teachers as possible to be as active as possible in our PTO.
We are a volunteer organization. There are no dues or fees to join us; simply come to any meeting as your schedule allows. Please click on the buttons below to review a copy of our PTO Bylaws and see minutes of past meetings.
PTO fundraising is separate from the Divine Mercy Catholic Academy’s $800 annual fundraising requirement which underwrites our school’s general improvement fund. PTO funds are used to underwrite the extra events and trips we organize for our students. They are totally optional, but much appreciated. Details on each of our upcoming fundraising activities are posted on separate web pages under PTO in the main menu of this website.
Our PTO meets monthly throughout the school year in the Bishop McCort High School Cafeteria. Meetings begin at 6:30 PM and last a little over one hour. Agendas for each meeting will be posted on this page a few days ahead of each scheduled meeting, and minutes will be posted after each meeting so it will be easy for everyone to stay informed.
