Introducing our newly elected PTO Executive Committee lead by Ismail Ibrahim (a.k.a Ibrahim).  
For Mr. Ibrahim, life comes in full circle. Serving as our newly elected PTO President is a role all too familiar to him.  Mr. Ibrahim, had served as PTO President at CSEE once before back in 2009-2012. Mr. Ibrahim like many of us made a choice to enroll his children at the Charter School of Educational Excellence ("CSEE").  A choice him and his wife made to afford their children a better education than their local district could ever have.  His children have been molded and educated by the charter system and the dedicated Educators at CSEE. His youngest is currently a 7th grader at CSEE and the oldest, who was one of the first to attend CSEE is off to college come September 2016.

Under the leadership of Mr. Ibrahim, as an organization, the PTOwls are committed to be a voice for all students and parents/guardians alike.  However we can't do this without you.  WE NEED YOU!  

PTOwls HEART OUR CHARTER SCHOOL

Please consider being an active participant of the CSEE PTO. All we're asking is a commitment of one hour a month. Statistics demonstrate, a child's success in school is greatly attributed to their parents/guardian involvement. Take a moment and WATCH THE VIDEO LINKS BELOW.
