Starship Orion is the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for the Orion Alternative and Mandarin Immersion Programs at the John Gill Campus. With support and involvement from all families, Starship hosts community events and funds important resources. Starship has an elected executive board and multiple committees run by dedicated parent volunteers. Every parent is a voting member of Starship and can provide feedback, suggestions or ideas. We encourage each family to get involved in a way that works for them. Below are a few ways to participate.
