Welcome to the Merrimac PTO website!

The PTO is a group of parent, staff and community volunteers who organize fundraisers and sponsor school events to benefit the students at Sweetsir and Donaghue schools.  We are looking forward to kicking off the 2016-2017 school year!

Here are a few of the things the PTO does

- Organizes extra-curricular enrichment activities for students

- Plans budget-friendly family fun events throughout the year

- Organizes fundraising events to supply resource materials for our teachers and their classroom


The world famous Harvest Festival is coming up quick!


Friday, October 28 – 5:30-8pm

~Harvest Festival is almost here! Please make sure you and your families come by and have some fun! We have lots of fun things planned for you, and if your brave enough, you can take a walk through the haunted house!! Thank you to all the parents and students who have volunteered their time! We couldn’t run this event without your help!

Please note: due to safety concerns, we request that you do not wear Halloween costumes. Thank you for your support with this concern.
