Dues are $25 per family, regardless of the number of the children, and include access for 1 device to the PaperlessPTO Directory App. Log in to your Paperless PTO account (or create a new account, if you are new to using this website), complete your To-Do List with your student's updated grade and teacher assignments, and add "Membership Dues" to your shopping cart. PTO Membership is required to purchase from the PTO Lunch Program and to sign up for the After School Enrichment Program (ASEP), along with many other benefits!
