USD 109 C.A.R.E.S.

Community Association Regarding Excellence in Schools.

Our Mission:

"Through active participation and volunteerism our community will strive for school excellence."



Welcome to the newly created USD109 PTO group. USD109 C.A.R.E.S. is a community of people striving to assist our teachers and students to achieve excellence.

Our participation and volunteerism in the schools directly and indirectly shows our appreciation towards teachers and staff for all the hard work they do. This takes a great team effort and that is what the USD109 C.A.R.E.S.  team, with help from YOU, are striving to do.

Our children will see and learn from the examples we set by our involvement with their school work.

Let us watch our children thrive as we strive for excellence.
