What is PTO?

PTO is the parent teacher organization of the Wadsworth City Schools.  Each City school, as well as Sacred Heart School, has a separate PTO unit, all operating cooperatively and collectively as PTO United.  Monthly meetings, open to the public, are held by each unit as well as by PTO United.  In addition to individual unit initiatives and programming, PTO United sponsors a city-wide Fine Arts Festival, Safety Town, and annual scholarships.
