The PTO is fortunate to be able to help the Upham school provide many wonderful educational and community programs and educational tools for its students.  This is possible because of parents’ very generous donations of time and resources.  The PTO is grateful for your time, which is invaluable, and for any other donation(s) you wish to make.  There are many ways to support the PTO.
