Welcome to Riverside Elementary PTO!
Together, parents, teachers and the PTO create school spirit and provide support for our staff and students throughout the year! The purpose of the Riverside Elementary PTO is to provide support and communicate with, parents, teachers, students, and administrators to help make Riverside a great place to learn and have fun! And even though this year looks different, we can still make it a great year! Thank you for supporting PTO and being involved!

Every grade level that reaches 75% participation receives a Popcicle Party! Let’s make it happen!

However, we do know that the PTO will continue to be a resource for our amazing staff and students throughout the year, in whatever way we can!
Last year, PTO membership donations and events helped purchase new laptops, technology tubs, and mulch/borders for the playgrounds.
New this year! Your membership funds will also help purchase several picnic tables for outdoor classroom and lunchtime spaces! Donate towards this project here: https://tinyurl.com/riversidepto2020

During a typical school year, there are many fun and easy ways to get involved at RES!
