Introducing the Essex Town PTO!

  • The Essex Town Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a nonprofit organization that represents Essex Elementary School, Founders Memorial School, and Essex Middle School.

    Our PTO works to foster a sense of community among the three schools through educational events and activities, programs, fundraising efforts, and communication opportunities between parents, students and schools.

    We look forward to working with you, the children, teachers, and staff this school year.

    We encourage your involvement in our schools. Find out how you can make a difference at EES, FMS and EMS today.
