Your EE PTO Membership is a benefit to your student, to their teacher, and to the greater EE Community!
This active group of parents and staff work together throughout the school year to support all students.
All parents are encouraged to participate. Many fun-filled and beneficial events are planned each school year.
Please contact us with your ideas, your concerns, to volunteer your time, or better yet, attend one of our meetings.
We meet the third Tuesday of each month from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. All parents are welcome to join!
Working together to promote a closer relationship between home and school is our goal and we look forward to a successful year for everyone at EE!

The EE PTO (Elmcrest Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization) is an important part of the Elmcrest Community, bringing together parents, staff, and students.
The mission of the EE PTO is to enhance the educational experience of our students by fostering positive relationships between our school, home and community. Through fundraising and volunteer efforts, the EE PTO provides resources to students and staff that complement those provided by the school district.
Every year the EE PTO funds field trips and bus expenses, classroom magazines, author visits, school folders and planners, school assemblies, additional classroom supplies, and more.
The PTO also supports Dollars for Scholars, PAC, and the EE Math and Science Fair.
