Mr. Ricketts would like to see the parents of Kennedy recognize the teachers of Kennedy for all of their hard work! Each month during the school year KTVM consults with a selection committee of school Superintendents in our viewing area who review nominations sent in to our NBC Montana Website and directly to the station. Our wonderful Production team creates a video profile for the selected teacher that is available for viewing on ktvm.com as well as airing for a week on TV. Let's get out there and nominate our teachers for the KTVM Gold Star Teacher's Award!

Why Join PTO?
Enjoy the Benefits The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Organization is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more advantages. Here are just a few:
Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
Discover Great Resources. The PTO offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
Tap into a Network. Parenting is not easy - it helps to share ideas, concerns and experiences with other parents and educators in the community. PTO functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.
Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTO, you gain valuable experiences. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause—for your child and all children in the community.
Speak Up. Because the PTO is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions. PTO can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local PTO's play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs and social events – all vital to a school’s success.
Be A Role Model. By becoming a PTO member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
