We're looking forward to meeting new faces and greeting old friends! Did you know every parent and guardian of a Shaker Heights student is already a member of the PTO? Membership is free to all!

Join us in the auditorium @ 7 p.m. to learn how you can make this the best school year yet for our children. There is always free childcare for kids 18 months to 11 years old.
