Welcome to the Clarence High School PTO!The CHS PTO website and Social Media pages are a great way to stay informed about both school and PTO events. There are a variety of ways to become involved in the PTO from donating food, chaperoning dances or assisting at functions. You can also support the PTO through your financial donations.PTO monies are used to fund scholarships, provide staff appreciation days, support other events such as the Sleep Out for the Homeless and fulfill special purchase requests that might not otherwise be funded.This year we created several new scholarships for students participating in Harkness Career and Technical Program and the Arts Program at Clarence High School. We are the only school district in WNY that provides Career and Technical Training Scholarships but we hope other districts will follow our lead.The PTO sponsored the Holiday Cookie Event, Atlas Tests Practice SAT/ACT sessions, Staff Appreciation Luncheon and the Staff Farewell breakfast. We also provided volunteer support for the Sleep Out and school dances, coordinated the Summer Reading Book Sale, and new this year a Clarence Red Devils spirit wear sale.
