What is the Mount Nittany Elementary School PTO?
PTO is short for parent-teacher organization. It's an exciting time to be a part of the PTO! We are officially a nonprofit with the unique opportunity to serve and support the staff and families of MNE. If you have a loved one attending MNE, or you work within the school, then you are a member of our PTO community. There are no dues to pay! All are welcome and we look forward to getting you connected.
What do we do?
Our mission is to build a stronger community together. You tax-decuctible donations aid Mount Nittany Elementary school and the PTO to provide learning opportunities by complementing the school curriculum. This includes supporting school field trips, classroom activities, start up student school supplies, clubs, books, spirit wear for incoming students and organizing family functions, like Free Friday Movie Nights, Litfest and the Exploration Fair. There is so much more! All students at MNE benefit from PTO sponsored events and programming. Come see how you can made an impact on students!
How can you help?
All of this wouldn't be possible without the generosity of our amazing volunteers! You give your time, talents and resources! Thank you for your service! Here's how you can help:
- Volunteer! At home, at school, at an event! Lots of opportunities!

*Last year we raised enough money to fund approximately $50.00/student for activities and programming.
