Our Objectives

The PAPO Executive organizes PAPO activities and events and encourage parent involvement in school, supporting programs that promote parent involvement.  We aim to promote cooperation between the home and school in providing support for the education of our children.  We always appreciate feedback, suggestions and mostly help from PARENTS. 

What is the difference between PAPO and the PAPO Executive?

The PAPO Executive is a group of volunteer parents confirmed by PA who represent the voice of all school parents.  The Executive team helps to organize all the PAPO events during the course of the school year, such as the most recent uniform sale, Breakfast with Santa, Book Drive, Silent Auction/PA Gala and Teacher’s Appreciation Week, and other fundraising events.

Our Valuable Parent Class Representatives & Volunteers

A volunteer parent is selected to be a class representative to support and help the home room teacher to send messages and information that they want to share with the parents of his/her class. 

To all interested parents, volunteers are always appreciated – being involved truly supports in your children’s love for learning.  If you want to volunteer or have any comments, concerns, commendations please email us at papo.executive@pythagorasacademy.ca.
