The mission of the Winnebago PTO is to promote open communication and understanding between parents and staff of Winnebago Elementary School.  Our efforts serve to enhance and maximize the education of every child while aiding them in achieving their highest potential.   We strive to promote quality programs and abide by our bylaws for the care, protection, and education of children in the home, school and community. Building a stronger relationship between the home and school so that parents, teachers and administrators may work together in the total education of the child is a key goal of the Winnebago PTO. Each year the Winnebago PTO challenges itself to learn more, do more and provide more both inside and outside of our school community.
