Dear PTO, I would like to take the time to tell you how much, we teachers, appreciate your lovely luncheons and the fun raffles. It is so nice to feel taken care of once in a while, and your dishes are always prepared with so much love (the secret ingredient!). You are the most active PTO I have ever encountered, and I am impressed by all your hard work, and the time you give to our schools." -Asheville High Teacher
