Ortega Elementary PTO creates an active, cohesive community of families, faculty and staff at Ortega Elementary School. This organization works to achieve the visions and goals developed for Ortega Elementary School through the support of the enrichment and recognition programs.
SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS
The PTO consists of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students. We support school staff, help promote student self-esteem, and assist in efforts to solve school needs through volunteers and fundraising.
Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education have better grades and fewer discipline problems. Involvement at the school also makes it easier to establish friendships with teachers and other parents. We promise that the time you give for the school will be worth your while and fun! Together, we can make a difference!
The PTO is our collective voice to advocate for our school and stay up to date with what is happening at school. You are a part of the PTO and we encourage you to come to PTO meetings and learn what is happening at your school and what activities are benefiting your child on a day to day basis.
PTO is an awesome way to meet other families and connect! Attend events, share experiences, and enjoy spending time with your Ortega Otter community.
