Wichita, KS

Earhart PTO (formerly Co-op) is a group of parents and teachers working together to support the students at Earhart Environmental Magnet. We strive to support Earhart's mission and goals as follows. No dues are charged to be a member of PTO!

We are responsible for planning and are actively involved in several activities and events throughout the year. Some of those include: staff luncheons, yearbook, Box Tops for Education, selling Earhart T-shirts, a school dance and of course our one and only fundraiser, Fall Festival.
