The Cicero Elementary School Parent Teacher Group (PTG) is and has been an integral part of our school community for many years. All parents who have a child enrolled at Cicero Elementary are automatically a member of our PTG!
Our PTG is always excited and honored to be involved in working closely with Cicero Elementary to create a school year filled with learning and fun for students, teachers AND parents! We assist with classroom and grade level needs, provide many school-wide functions throughout the school year, and offer varied parent involvement opportunities. We love to welcome new faces and fresh ideas - please join us at our monthly meetings to get involved with our school!
If you have any questions or would like more information about our PTG, please contact us via email at email@example.com. And be sure to join our private Facebook group for parents and teachers - it's a great resource for quick information about our school and other information of interest to parents.
Are you new to Cicero El? Or just looking for a friend to talk to?
Our PTG has a fabulous Hospitality Committee whose mission is to make everyone feel included and welcomed - especially those who move in throughout the year, but also including current students and families!

2018 Walk-a-Thon begins ... NOW!
Our second annual Walk-a-Thon is officially ON now! Visit our 2018 Walk-A-Thon website to learn all about it and download a Donations Collection form and other helpful information. This is school-wide fundraiser where students will get pledges and walk laps on a marked course to raise money for Cicero Elementary. Our goals are to:
- Promote a healthy and active lifestyle to our students!
- Raise money to support PTG funded activities and events!
The Walk-A-Thon will take place at Cicero El during school hours on Thursday, September 27.
The rain date is Friday, September 28th. Participation is free and students will walk with their classmates during their assigned time.
WE CAN NOW ACCEPT DEBIT & CREDIT CARD DONATIONS! Look for the Paypal logo and yellow "Donate" button on our Walk-A-Thon page (and you do NOT need a Paypal account!).
(Previously Cicero Elementary has done several fundraisers per year, which included selling items. We have found that one fundraiser with 100% profit is more beneficial to Cicero Elementary and its families. If we’re able to raise our fundraising goal for the year we won’t need to ask for families to raise any more money for the 2018-2019 school year!)
