About Us

The Wickliffe PTO is made up of parent volunteers who work cooperatively with our teachers and staff to support the overall well-being of our students, families, and Wickliffe community. We use the Foundational Principles of Progressive Education as our guide to ensure that we are supporting the overall mission of our school. 


It takes a lot of volunteers and many different talents to make our work possible.  All school families, teachers, and staff are encouraged and welcomed to join and participate. As a parent, this is your group and the forum to kindly discuss ideas, issues, and opinions on school related activities.
