  • To enhance the educational outcomes of Sussex-Wantage students by fostering support for the school’s educational objectives.
  • To enhance the educational facilities and opportunities for Sussex-Wantage students and staff which are not otherwise provided for in the school’s budget.
  • This Mission is to be carried out through volunteerism and fund raising on behalf of the parents, students and staff of  the Sussex-Wantage School District.

How SWPTO Supports our Community and Mission

Great things happen when you join and become part of something good!

School & Community

The Sussex-Wantage PTO provides support for the entire school community! We are committed to providing opportunities for school families to bond and socialize.

Fundraising & Volunteerism

Throughout each school year the SWPTO organizes several fundraisers.  The monies raised are used to purchase items and fund programs that support the curriculum and benefit every student.  Your support is essential to our funding of these grants. 

Enrichment Opportunities

PTO funds support many enrichment opportunities for our staff and children. We fund programs for students and support teachers and staff with some of the “extras” for the classroom that they can’t fit into their budget.

Scholarship Programs

Each spring the PTO awards $500 scholarships to high school seniors who display a significant interest in their community while performing exceptionally well with their studies and extracurricular activities.
