All Roy Cloud School families are strongly encouraged to participate in and volunteer for PTO events throughout the year. The success of the Roy Cloud and the PTO can be seen in the cooperation between teachers and parents as we work together for the best interest of our children and our school.

Enclosed below is a more detailed list of events we run throughout the year to help you decide where you would like to spend your time and grow our community!
