The purpose of the PTC is:
•To foster and maintain cooperation and understanding between parents, students, administration, and teachers.
•To provide a means whereby the parents can meet with representatives of the school to consider and act upon matters of common interest affecting the students and the school. (The School Committee and administration have the power to establish policies on academic and administrative matters.)
•To provide support and service to the administrative and teaching staff in planning and coordinating extra-curricular activities of the school.

PTC meetings are held monthly, and all parents and staff are welcome to attend. The PTC is committed to providing funds each year to the classroom teachers to purchase supplies and to fund transportation costs for class field trips. Other activities funded by the PTC may include special programs and purchasing equipment. Each PTC committee (except fundraising) is budgeted funds for their event or project. All parents are encouraged to support the programs that make Eliot special by giving generously to the Keep Eliot Extraordinary campaign. Checks can be made out to the John Eliot PTC and sent to the PTC mailbox in the school office at any time. All PTC funds go directly into school projects, functions, supplies, and equipment.
