TOP 10 REASONS TO JOIN JVL WILDCAT'S PTO:
1. It’s good for your child. Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school make better grades and have fewer disciplinary problems at school. When parents get plugged in at school, their children do better.
2. It’s important to the school. PTO provides support to teachers and administrators, and creates a caring and supportive atmosphere in the school. With all of the budget cuts, schools are becoming more and more dependent on parent groups.

In August 2014, we were awarded a very competitive 3 year Federal grant called the "Elementary and Secondary School Counseling Program". This grant will help us give extra support to students who face struggles against long and short term physical, psychological and emotional harm. These harms, among others, include depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic disorders. Students who are failing or having difficulty in school may be due to bullying, harassment, violence and substance abuse; and becoming delinquent or engaging in criminal behavior, including violent acts. The awarded funds from this grant will help us appoint additional counselors and social workers who will have in depth engagement with affected students. Their goal will be to curb and ultimately control mental issues certain students face in their daily lives.
