Our mission is to promote a positive environment for students at Conard High School by providing a forum for open communication between parents, teachers and school administrators and by funding educational programs for the school community.
The PTO distributes important information via the E-News, provides an opportunity for Conard Families to keep current on issues at school through Parent Principal Forum meetings and facilitates parent participation at school. We support student enrichment programs throughout the school year.
The end of the 2019-2020 school year was challenging for many in our community and the PTO was proud to
support Safegrad 2020 helping to provide all Conard graduates with Conard Graduate 2020 lawn signs and by
also supporting the Conard emergency fund for the purchasing of Stop and Shop cards for families in our
school community. We ask that you please consider supporting our Conard community by paying the annual PTO dues of $20. To pay dues or make a donation online click the donate button above - Join the PTO!
The PTO distributes important information via weekly E-News and we provide the opportunity for Conard families to keep current on important issues through monthly Google Meet Parent Principal Forums. We support student and community enrichment programs throughout the school year with funds raised through PTO dues, donations and Stop and Shop rewards.
In recent years we were able to fund several teacher grant requests, the year-end student awards, donations to student groups, the teacher's back to school luncheon, Teacher Appreciation Day, Senior Breakfast at the Safe Grad Party, College Panel Night, Conards Best Kept Secrets, West Hartford Scholarship Fund, War-Chief Sports Council and town wide charities such as the Foundation for WH Public Schools, The Mayor's Charity Ball, Children's Charity Ball, WHCTV (WHCI), Community of Concern and more.
The PTC is a group that meets approximately once a month during the school year to discuss matters that impact the entire school district. Each meeting generally has a primary topic, followed by an informal Q&A/discussion with the Superintendent. The meeting is not designed to be open to the public – it is an opportunity for each school’s representative to participate in a dialogue with school district leadership and the other schools' representatives, then communicate back to their school community on those discussions.
PTC representatives are expeced to attend and have active participation in the monthly meetings, followed by reporting out on the meeting’s content to their school’s community. In addition, the PTC regularly gets information on other activities going on throughout the district – representatives are expected to timely pass that information on to their school communities as well.
