TJ’s PTO is a group of parents, teachers, students and community members who support the schoolwide activities and programs that make TJ the DPS neighborhood high school of choice for Southeast Denver.
High school is a pivotal time for students and families, and one in which lasting memories are made. We invite you to get to know TJ’s PTO and become a part of this increasingly active school community, made stronger by our diverse backgrounds, talents and resources. We understand families are busy, but invite you to network, lend a hand, and make a difference at a time critical to student development. It’s how great high schools (and students!) are created and sustained.
“I always wondered why somebody doesn’t do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.”
We work to increase parental engagement and school spirit. Our goal is to make every student’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering TJ’s families and greater community to advocate for all students. Our support helps the school in a number of important ways:
Your involvement in any capacity is important and appreciated. We are successful because of your behind-the-scenes contributions, large and small. It all adds up to a stronger community. An engaged parent body is nearly always associated with higher test scores, a stronger school community and more successful students.
Little time or no time? You can still make a difference.
Attend a meeting. Volunteer. Donate. Sign up. It’s easy to find ways to help TJ that also work with your schedule.
Open positions will be filled in August and September. Please join our first PTO meetings to get involved!
