California PTO

The California Elementary Parent Teacher Organization’s goal is to help promote the welfare, growth, and education of children, youth and adults in the school and the community.


As an organization we work to promote positive school/community relationships that enhance our children’s educational environment and seek to promote an enriched educational environment and offer support to the staff, teachers, and principal. We try to offer a variety of events for our students and their families to enjoy. While events are on hold for now some events we plan to host or assist with this year are Class Movie Nights, Field Day Snacks, a Golf Tournament, Disney Trivia Night & the Me & My Special Guy Dance. Additionally, PTO purchases school supplies, indoor & outdoor recess supplies and we are working on painting the playground!
