The Lyon PTO is the non-profit organization that contributes directly to Mary Lyon Elementary School students, staff, and families. On May 31, 2016, the parents & teachers at Mary Lyon change our parent-teacher group from a PTA to a PTO. This means we are no longer part of the larger Parent Teacher Association, but instead operate as an independent Parent Teacher Organization. Being an independent organization means:
- We do not collect membership dues. We welcome any and all families of Mary Lyon Elementary school to participate.
- All of our proceeds go directly towards benefiting Mary Lyon families & stakeholders.
- We abide by our own set of bylaws, not those set by a larger state-level organization. Our families and stakeholders have direct say in how we operate.
