The Shaker Heights Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is dedicated to facilitating the active and informed involvement of all parents and families to achieve the educational success and well-being of all children. Each Shaker school has a Parent Teacher Organization, and every parent/caregiver and teacher of a Shaker student is automatically a member.


Website access to the school pages as well as resources and meeting notes are available to all community members.  In order to receive PTO emails and access to the directory, faculty/staff and families are asked to register below. 


There are no fees to join the PTO. Please register with a Membership Toolkit account to have access to the family directory. Once you are registered, you will have the opportunity to decide what, if any, of your family information is included in the directory. 


Please check back often. We are working hard to add information that will help our parents stay connected with our PTO and school community.



 If you already have a Membership Toolkit account with another organization,
you can use the same log-in here.
