The PTO of Raton has partnered with the Elks Club and has raised thousands of dollars to supply local students and teachers with much needed school essentials. Boxes and boxes of pencils, calculators and notebooks were given to classroom teachers and students at the start of the year to help ensure that every student has the materials that they need to learn. The mission of the Raton PTO is to encourage parents to become more aware of their children’s education, bolster teacher morale and to give parents a bigger voice in their child’s school.
