PATO: Parent Association for Tedako at OIST

Welcome to the PATO homepage!

The Parent Association for Tedako at OIST (PATO) is a group of parents seeking to support the Tedako CDC and SAP and to build community with other OIST families. We have meetings a few times a year to plan and discuss various events throughout the year like Teacher Appreciation Week, holiday parties, movie nights, and club fundraisers. We also help parents stay informed about updates from the CDC and SAP. We are always looking to include more families, so please sign up for our mailing list and come be a part!

Please join our emailing list by emailing and checkout our Facebook page and website! We also have a Slack channel.
