PTO Home

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.  Our goals are to encourage interactions between family and school and work with teachers, staff and the community at large to improve our children’s educational experience.


What are people saying about your Merrimac PTO:

“Hi Merrimac PTO, We wanted to thank you and the PTO committee for organizing the “Boosterthon” event!  Your dedication and commitment to the children, school staff and families of Merrimac is greatly appreciated! The dance-a-thon was a huge success! The kids and teachers had a fantastic experience! Thank You!!!!!”

Hi Nancy!
I just wanted to thank the PTO again for purchasing the SMART board for my classroom. It is finally up and running and the kiddos love it! I’ve already noticed an improvement in their willingness to learn and be engaged with the material. They all say thank you as well!
