East Elementary PTO
“If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful thinking, we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever.” — Kofi Annan
Our main purpose of the Parent/ Teacher Organization (PTO) is to enrich the educational experience of our children attending East Elementary. We work in partnership with teachers and administrators by collaborating thoughts and ideas on how parents of students can best support our school.
We look forward to another year of serving the East Elementary community and hope you will join us.
Please contact us for any additional information or questions at email@example.com

Parent involvement lays a foundation for building a strong PTO, which in turn enhances the educational environment for our children. We want to encourage all parents, relatives, guardians and caregivers to get involved! Many volunteer opportunities require minimal time and any contribution, big or small is valuable.
East PTO Family Nights are attended by the principal as well as classroom teachers and staff members to increase communication between faculty and parents. We want East Families to feel good about our students’ learning experience, so we invite you to attend our PTO Family Nights where we engage and interact as a school community to build an environment to better serve our students and each other.
** Starting for the 2020-21 school year, the PTO will not be hosting any Family Nights as to avoid large gatherings of people and prioritizing the safety of our community**
Fundraising events held throughout the year aim to enhance the experience for every child. PTO Fundraisers support the staffing of a playground supervisor and this past year, contributed to the funding of the new STEM Lab.
