Our History 

The Parent Teachers Organization of 

Holy Trinity G O C Bridgeport

 

It was in 1957 when Father William S. Kehayes organized the Community’s Parent-Teachers
Organization , with the intention that it would serve as “bridge” between Church and Home - between Educators, Parents, and Teachers. 

 

 

The P.T.O. Constitution was presented and approved by the Board of Trustees on September 24, 1957. The very first President of the organization was Mr. Demetrios Megas. At that time, the P.T.O. authored a scholarship, in the total amount of $200, which was co-sponsored
by the Philoptochos Society. This scholarship was awarded annually to a graduate of merit and need who had been accepted into an accredited College or University. The first two recipients of the scholarship were Evelyn Sivrakas and Christine Vlantes. Since then, the Scholarship fund has grown to $2,000, and scholarships continue to be distributed annually.

 

Since its inception, the primary purpose of the organization was to create an interest to
"promote the welfare of the children and youth in Church, home, school, and community, through participation in Greek and Sunday School," that they may be worthy recipients of their faith and culture, and this precious heritage that we call our own. To this end, and as is mentioned in the Greek School’s history, several parents of the P.T.O., under the leadership
of John Caraberes and Irene Mellas, petitioned the Board of Trustees for a Greek School
class in Trumbull, which was approved. Because of their efforts, a second Greek School was born in October of 1959. Classes were held at the Edison Public School in Trumbull, CT.
Even in its infant stage, the P.T.O. contributed much to the general welfare and stability of the Church Schools. At the time, the success of the Philoptochos Society was a motivating force in attaining a desired goal of importance in the life-line of Parish activity by its sister-organization, the P.T.O.
