Mission Statement

The Gretna Elementary PTO is an organization whose purpose is to strengthen, enhance and encourage the educational and social environment of Gretna Elementary. 

The members of the PTO are all the families and staff members who are associated with Gretna Elementary.  The PTO Board represents the membership.  This Board is composed of PTO members who are either elected or appointed to Board positions.  The Board meets on a monthly basis throughout the school year and Board members, along with other appointed PTO members, manage the organizational and financial aspects of all the PTO functions.

The PTO operates on an annual budget, which is approved by a PTO membership vote at an annual PTO meeting.  The money used to sponsor PTO activities is raised through annual fundraising events (i.e. Red Apple fundraiser in the Fall and Torch Run in the Spring).

The achievements of the Gretna Elementary PTO can be measured in the cooperative spirit with which parents and teachers work together to share their care and concern for Gretna Elementary students.  The PTO's success can be seen in the student's appreciation for their school, their teachers and the opportunities these give to them.
