What is our Parent Teacher Organization?
We are a nonprofit liaison to Unionville Elementary governed by dedicated volunteers.
Our PTO Mission
The mission of the Unionville Elementary PTO Inc. is to align resources to enrich the learning environment while empowering parents, teachers and students to reach our goals of academic and life skill success. Our desire as a PTO is to exemplify integrity, teamwork and community while fostering productive, healthy partnerships with school teachers and administration staff. We do this by providing financial support to our school, implementing and managing meaningful programs and using an enthusiastic group of volunteers. UVES PTO strives to enhance and promote a positive learning environment for the students of Unionville through

In order to ensure the safety of the children, UCPS has implemented a Volunteer Screening Policy. The level of screening for volunteers will be reflective of the degree of supervised versus unsupervised involvement with a child. Parents must be approved volunteers to attend field trips and class parties. All volunteers who will have contact with students must have a criminal background check. These volunteer application are done on-line. It takes a number of weeks to get approval, due to the volume of applications. All who wish to chaperone field trips must be approved UCPS volunteers. Those who were approved to volunteer last year and did volunteer at least once per semester do not need to reapply. If there is a lapse in service of one semester or more, the volunteer must reapply. As always, volunteers are one of our most valuable resources!
