The primary goal of the Newburyport PTO is to promote the general welfare of children in the schools. The PTO fulfills this objective by organizing and sponsoring educational and social programs that benefit and support ALL children, families, and faculty of the Bresnahan, Molin, and Nock schools. The PTO works with the Newburyport families to plan and organize its programs throughout the year, and relies on volunteers to successfully implement the events both in and outside of schools. Below are some of our initiatives and events that are offered annually.
We are thrilled to have you in our community!
