About the PTO

James H. Watson’s Parent Teacher Organization strives to support, strengthen, and encourage the education of our children by fostering relationships among the school, parents, and teachers.  Our primary objective is to provide volunteers and financial support to enhance the educational environment of our children.

All PTO related communications that will be distributed and/or sent home will be on blue paper and will contain the PTO logo in the upper right hand corner.

Watson Elementary PTO is also on on Facebook.  Simply visit our page and click “Like” for access to all PTO related events, photos, and activities.  If you have any questions, please send and email to
