PTO NEWS!

Welcome to the Dowling PTO news page! Here you will find information on meetings, volunteer needs, events, and the current newsletter.

 

The PTO fosters community and raises funds to provide a wide range of educational enrichment programs for the students. We help fund class trips, books, classroom supplies, and much, much more. PTO support has provided learning opportunities that may have otherwise been unavailable to our children.
