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 firstname.lastname@example.org

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.

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. Money raised by the PTO also supports fun events like the Annual Dragon Dance, teacher and staff appreciation and other holiday celebrations held throughout the year. Our yearly fundraisers include
- Fall Read-A-Thon
- Spring Fun Run
- Various Restaurant Nights
- King Soopers Cards and Box Top Programs
Reloadable King Soopers Gift Cards are one of our biggest and easiest fundraisers to take part in! These cards can be used to purchase gas and groceries at all King Soopers locations.
