Lionheart PTO's Mission Statement

The Lionheart PTO is organized to support and enhance the growth of the social skills, independent skills, and academic skills of the students at Lionheart Academy of the Triad.

Monthly PTO Meetings

The Lionheart PTO meets the second Monday of every month at 6:00 pm.  The location of the meetings alternates between meeting at the school and meeting at a restaurant.  The meetings are wonderful opportunities to stay informed, get involved, make a difference, meet new people, and see familiar faces.

Monthly Family Events

The Lionheart PTO hosts one family event at the end of every month.  Family events allow students to interact with one another outside of school, help siblings feel included, provide a chance for parents to communicate, and are a lot of fun!  Most of all, the family events create a sense of community.  Family events in the past have included a picnic, a trunk-or-treat, a swim at the Greensboro Acquatic Center, a visit to Rockin' Jump, and bowling at Spare Time.

Staff Appreciation

The Lionheart PTO coordinates "You are Wonderful" Wednesdays.  Every Wednesday, a parent brings in treats and a note of appreciation for the staff.  Parents have brought in bagels, muffins, mints, cupcakes, popcorn bags with Redbox gift cards, cookies, gum packets, chocolates, nuts, mini-pumpkin loaves and so on.  Sometimes the treats might have a catchy saying such as ""Muffin' to do but appreciate you!" or  just a simple thank-you note addressed to the whole staff.  It's a simple and easy way to show appreciation to those who work with our children everyday.  You can sign up at

The Lionheart PTO also coordinates teacher workday meals.  Each teacher workday, a parent or group of parents provides lunch for the staff.  Previous lunches have included Domino's Pizza, Panera Bread, and Zoe's Kitchen.  Supplying lunch for the staff gives them extra time to work and much needed fuel.  You can sign up at
