LEARNING LOG: East Gresham PTO plans to dissolve
The East Gresham Parent Teacher Organization plans to dissolve. The PTO members voted to transfer all assets, including $10,320 in cash, directly to the school.
Principal Kimberly Miles said the organization was having difficulty attracting parents to be officers of the PTO. Events normally organized by the PTO will continue at the school, but will be organized by others.
"We have some amazing parents at East," said Miles. Parents will continue to support the school through fund-raising efforts as individual parents.
