Alone we can do so little;
together we can do so much.
-HELEN KELLER

You can make a difference in your child's school!

The PTO is comprised of parents and guardians just like you! We are full-time working parents, stay-at-home caregivers, 3rd shift workers, and everything in between. One thing we are not? Cliquey! We are a fun, no-pressure group that shares a common goal: to enrich and support our students' school experiences with fundraising and fun community events. Volunteer a lot, a little, or simply attend an event... it's all good!  

PTO Meeting and Events Calendar

We'd love to see you there!

PTO's Annual Events

Fall | Start of School

Boosterthon Fun Run Event

The school year kicks off with our biggest fundraiser for the year. The Boosterthon is a pledge fun run that incorporates positive messaging over two weeks with exciting silly classroom challenges. The drive leads up to a non-competitive race that all the students enjoy while parents and loved ones cheer them on!

 

Varies by Season + School

Staff Appreciation Luncheon Events

A small way to say "thank you" for all the staff does for our kiddos throughout the year, the PTO hosts a luncheon at both AES and CES. Parents and caregivers are welcome to volunteer, bring in a dish, or support a raffle gift card. 

Fall | September

Ice Cream Social
Event

Start the school year with new and old friends over a big bowl of yummy ice cream. A well-loved community event, enjoy music and dancing, raffles and so much more! It's also our annual Membership Night so, drop on by to meet fellow PTO-ers and join the PTO while munching on chocolate sprinkles and gummy bears!

 

Fall + Winter
