The Julian Middle School PTO Mission

  • Promote the welfare of youth in the home, the school and the community.
  • Bring into closer relationship the home and school so that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of youth.
  • Develop united efforts between educators and the general public to secure the highest advantages in mental, physical and social education for all youth.
