Thanks to the generous support of Stratton families, the PTO is able to fully fund or subsidize year-round in-class enrichment, community events, and curriculum support.
Last year we sent Stratton students to curriculum-enhancing field trips at the Museum of Science, Stone Zoo, Moakley Courthouse, Audubon Habitat, Plimoth Plantation, Lowell Mills, and a dozen more destinations. At Stratton our students met author Scott Magoon, drew with comic book artist Bob Flynn, rocked out with the Alphabet Rockers, and saw history come to life with the reenactments by the Colonial Minutemen and the Redcoats. In the classroom the PTO helps faculty fill the library, laminate the posters, and enhance their classrooms. Finally, the PTO brings the Stratton community together with ALWAYS FREE community events like the Ice Cream Social, Pumpkin Carving, Movie Night, Science Night, and Fun Fest.
