The Condit Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) supports many enriching activities that directly benefit each of our kids. Without the time, effort, and financial support from parents and staff, the committees below and the activities they encompass would not exist. Each committee requires parent volunteers, both to chair and assist; some need only 1 volunteer, others require many. The committees typically require a 1-2 year commitment. Please find an activity that interests you and consider where you can give your time and talent to Condit.
