Superior Elementary will be using the online database PTO Manager again this year to organize your personal information, volunteer interests, student details, and to create our school directory.  Our principal, Jenn Ikenouye, will also be using PTO Manager to send out all school wide email communication.  Below are some important aspects that you will need to look at to be sure the new school year gets off to a great start. 

If you have any questions about this process, please contact Kristi Lawley at 


PTO Manager Registration Instructions

In order to be included in class emails, school-wide emails and the school directory you must register/update at the following website by 9/1/12.


Returning Families

  1. Log into your PTO Manager account at:

(If you forgot your password there is a link below the sign in box to have your password emailed to you)

  1. Under “Volunteer Builder”, choose the “My Information” field.
  2. In Step 1, check to be sure that all of your personal details are correct.  This is the information that will be used in the directory.  Then select “Save”. If both parents want to be listed in the directory be sure to see Step 1 in the New Families section for guidance. 
  3. In Step 2, please take a moment to see if there is something that you are interested in doing to enrich the experience of your child while at SES.  Select your options and then click “Save”.
  4. In Step 3, to update your class detail, click “Edit” and use the pull down for class to choose your child’s teacher and then click “Save”.  Repeat for additional children.  If you have a student that is no longer at SES then you should delete his or her name.  It is critical that you complete this step to ensure accuracy in the directory and also to be sure your child’s teacher can use this tool to contact you.


New Families

  • Go to:
  • Then go to the bottom right of the screen: New PTO Manager user?  Click here to register
  • Enter email and create a password.  (If you have a student at another school that uses this program, you may use the same email address but you must use a different password for each school.  After you click on “Save” you will need to click the “confirm” button to move to the next step.  It is just letting you know that you have an account there as well under the same email address.)

Step 1-Enter your information

  • Include only what you would want to see in the directory.  However, you MUST include your first and last name as well as an email address.  If you do not want to be in the directory then check the appropriate box. 
  • If you are using only one email address then you can enter both parents’ first names

      (e.g., Mary and John).

  • If you would like 2 email addresses or there are 2 separate households or if parents use different last names then each parent needs to register separately.  Each parent would then enter their student’s name and information in Step 3.

    Step 2- Volunteer Opportunities

  • Click on the event to show more details.
  • Check the boxes next to the events you would be interested in helping with.  This only shows your interest.  It will NOT commit you to volunteering.  You will receive an email closer to the event’s date to volunteer if you are able.

     Step 3- Student Information

  • Click the “New Student” tab at the top and enter your student’s name, and birthday (birthday entry is optional).  Use the pull down menu under class to choose your child’s teacher.  Repeat for additional students.
