Join the PTO Next Year!

Are you looking for ways to get involved at Exploris? Joining the PTO will open opportunities to make a positive impact on our community.

As this year comes to a close, we are looking to fill positions for next year. Please email and let us know what you are interested in/ what skills you are willing to share with us. We have lots of committees that you could join! Fundraising, teacher appreciation, events, outreach, accounting, volunteering, communication, and more. The more parent/ family participation received, the greater impact we can make for our students!

Middle School Dance 5/12

Get your dancing shoes ready because it is time for our annual middle school dance!!  This year our middle school dance will be held at the City of Raleigh Museum on Friday, May 12 from 7pm-9pm. The CORM is located at 220 Fayetteville Street in Downtown Raleigh.  You will be able to drop your student off at the front entrance and then go out and have a nice evening in downtown!  Parents will not be allowed to attend the event.  Middle School Students only!  We have limited space available and we want to reserve that for all of our students. 

The CORM has provided parking directions for those of you who would like to grab a bite to eat/drink in the area while we entertain your student.  The parking garage cost $5. 

You can order your tickets in advance for only $8.  Please add your child’s name to the order.   You can also pay at the door for $10. 

Screenagers 4/25

Screenagers: Next Chapter is a film that examines the science behind emotional challenges, the interplay of social media (and technology), and most importantly, what can be done in our schools and homes to help them build crucial skills to navigate stress, anxiety, and depression in our digital age.  After viewing the film, we will have a panel of experts to guide us in a Q&A/discussion.  

In addition, this is the schedule for the event:  

Doors Open: 5:30PM
