Welcome to our PTO!

The Sunset Ridge/Middlefork PTO is comprised of parent-volunteers who work closely with faculty, staff and administration throughout the school year to develop and enhance the school experience of our children in District 29. The PTO manages and finances a variety of programs and assists the District in upgrading our facilities and curriculum.
 Our PTO welcomes the input and involvement of all parents - it couldn't operate without YOU!  To learn more about the individual roles within the PTO, please visit Who We Are.
 
We look forward to seeing you at our PTO Meetings and hope that you will consider volunteering and/or supporting our PTO events and fundraisers. 
 
You can also find PTO information on our Facebook Page.

  • The Book Fair
  • An annual Winter Benefit or letter writing campaign

We have a great group of enthusiastic parents, and we always welcome your input and participation. Please sign in or contact the school office for more detailed information.
