The Russell Dougherty PTO is committed to helping our teachers, staff and students have the absolute best experience possible so that optimal learning can happen. We strive to take funds raised by students and parents and provide supplies and experiences that cost more than the state allots to the school.

Over the 2017-2018 school year, the PTO took the funds raised through restaurant nights, Turkey Trot and other efforts and made some awesome improvements.
