What is the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)?
The Flatirons PTO is dedicated to supporting our school community and the education of our students in a number of ways. While a key role of the PTO is to raise funds to support this effort, there are many opportunities for parents to be involved, besides the fundraising effort itself.
Much of our fundraising effort is sent directly to the classroom and for school-day extracurricular activities: for example, we fund teacher classroom support, exciting and inspiring school assemblies, and field trips as well as support other requests made by the staff to help them provide an ultimate learning experience for our children.
In addition we coordinate many volunteer activities and events, provide a forum for communication between parents and staff, and serve as a parent-based liaison between our school and the District.
The Flatirons PTO meets monthly during the school year to review events and activities, make budget decisions and share in the success of our fabulous elementary school.
PTO usually meets once a month at 5:30 p.m. in the library. Childcare and food is provided for the children. This is free of charge.
Our meetings are open to all parents of the school for one, a few or all of our meetings. In addition to our parents, our meetings are also attended by many staff members and our principal, Scott Boesel.
We think that you will find the meetings to be informative, fun, and a good way to find out how you might like to support our Flatirons community.
A Special welcome to Kindergartens parents and those new to our school--Many of you think that PTO is already established and not something you can contribute to. In fact, you are our future….the earlier you get involved the earlier you can help shape your children’s education and your community at our wonderful school…please come and get involved!
How can you get involved?
There are countless ways to be involved with PTO. We have many volunteer options open for the next year, and unfilled positions on committees. We welcome you to come to our next meeting, browse our volunteer page or contact one of the people below.
