ORHS PTO Mission Statement


The Oyster River High School Parent-Teacher Organization (ORHS PTO) is a non-profit organization whose objective is to be a connection between parents, school administration and students through hosting monthly meetings that focus on current events in the school and community and by inviting professional speakers to speak on current topics. Through fundraising we help support areas within the high school that may not otherwise be financially supported by the district budget this includes scholarships, parent workshops, student club’s and other school related needs.


You make a living by what you get you make a life by what you give"
