About the Cloonan PTO

We are happy to welcome students, parents and staff members to this exciting year at Cloonan Middle School. Your Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is already planning fun and educational activities to support you and your students’ social and learning environment.

Our PTO's mission is to promote the welfare of our children by securing quality academic, physical, and social education, and promote an environment of cooperation between parents and teachers where our staff can do their best work and our students do their best learning.

Every parent/guardian and teacher is already a member of our PTO. Working with our PTO lets you impact hundreds of lives - including the one’s closest to your heart. We know your time is valuable and promise that the time you give to your PTO and Cloonan will be worth your while! I would like to help on the board: CLICK HERE

Thank you for your donations that help us fund important events and mini-grants!

School News and Announcements

Dear Bulldog Families –

As we plan for the remainder of the school year, your involvement will be critical in planning and supporting school social events and end-of-year activities.

Our student council has been discussing many ideas with school administrators and the PTO, including:

·         Game Night Social Event – February 23

·         Multicultural Night – March 28

·         Spring Social Event – April or May

·         8th Grade Dinner Dance – May

·         6th Grade Field Trip to Holiday Hill– June

·         7th Grade Field Trip to Urban Air – May and Quassy Amusement Park – June

·         8th Grade Field Trip to Lake Compounce – June

·         8th Grade Graduation – June

Making these events happen requires parent involvement.  We need your help to plan events, volunteer at events, and to help fundraise to reduce the per-student cost of field trips. 

Our fundraising efforts so far this year have been disappointing.  The Charleston Wrap fundraiser generated only $1,200 and the December Pizza Sales netted only about $250.  The Annual Holiday Sale lost money. When you consider that every out-of-town field trip costs at least $8,000, it’s possible that we will not be able to offer some of these opportunities this school year. 

The Student Council, the PTO, and the Cloonan Administrative team are inviting you to attend one of two meetings to talk about how you can get more involved in our school community.  The meetings are as follows:

·         Monday, February 5 at 5 pm via Zoom – School Governance Council Meeting. Zoom link:

·         Friday, February 9 at 9 am at Cloonan – PTO monthly meeting with Cloonan administration

We cannot stress enough what a positive difference it makes in our school community to have parents and family involved. The Cloonan Community is what we make of it, and together, we can make it truly great.
