Welcome to the website of the Ockerman Elementary PTO.  If you have any ideas or suggestions for items to be included on the website, please email OckermanRocketsPTO@gmail.com.

Site Updates

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I've been unable to get the minutes from the PTO meetings. I will add Important Dates as I find out about them, but other than that, this website will not be updated untiI start receiving information.

Volunteer Training

In order to volunteer at Ockerman, you must complete the Volunteer Training.  Visit the link, view the short (less than 7 minutes) presentation by Ockerman's principal, Kimble Best and submit the Google Doc confirmation. 

Background Check

In order to volunteer in any capacity (field trip chaperone, classroom celebrations, parent classroom volunteers, PTO volunteers, etc.) at Ockerman Elementary, you must have an approved background check on file. Background checks are good for a period of 2 school years, at which time you must submit a new request form. The request form is submitted electronically to the state and the results are returned to the school. A letter stating approval or denial of your request will be send home with your child. All information is kept confidential.

Print and complete the background check form below and drop it off in the Ockerman front office during the school day with the $10 processing fee. The fee is charged by the State of Kentucky. Requests without proper payment will not be submitted.

Thank You!

The Ockerman Elementary Staff, Teachers, Families and PTO would like to say THANK YOU to Lowe’s for the beautiful hosta plants and to Maddox Landscaping for the large decorative rocks used in the landscaping around our school.

Important Dates

OES Parking Changes

Due to daily problems with double parking and cars parked illegally in handicapped and "No Parking" zones (where curbs are painted yellow), a change has taken place in regard to traffic management in the front parking lot at OES. From now on, the entrance to the parking lot will be blocked as soon as the lot is full.  Any parents arriving after this has taken place will need to park in the lot in front of Ockerman Middle.  Please do not park along the street, as this impedes traffic flow. We appreciate your willingness to assist us with maintaining a safe and efficient school environment at OES.

2016-2017 PTO Meetings

The PTO Meetings for the 2016-2017 school year will be moving to Wednesday evenings at 5:00 pm this year.  They are usually the first Wednesday of the month. Please watch the electronic billboard in the front of the building for reminders. I do not have the complete list of meeting dates.
