Messages from the Heart

We are so fortunate to have the Marengo family of teachers and administrators to help guide our child. Their level of dedication for each child is evident and they have shown genuine care for the kids. They are not solely focused on academics but value the social-emotional growth, character development, and the arts. We are so grateful for our principal Mrs. Cheadle, who is present at many school functions and is genuinely invested in making Marengo the best it can be

The Marengo PTA is a crucial link between our school and our community, and fuels the parent and family involvement that makes our schools (and Marengo especially) so successful. Volunteering for the PTA helped me better understand our schools and get more out of them for my children.

I wanted to get more involved and feel more connected to the school and other parents.  So, I signed up as a PTA volunteer for various events.  I never realized how much went on behind the scenes for our students.  I am constantly blown away by the dedication and generosity of the teachers and parents here at Marengo.

Become a Volunteer

Several events throughout the year raise funds for our school and depend on volunteers.

Volunteering can be as little a few minutes to as much as a whole day. There are many opportunities that fit ANY schedule and multiple levels of involvement, including assisting from home.

We welcome you to join us!
