What is the PTO?

The objectives of the Greens Prairie Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) are to help create and provide an environment for the enjoyment of learning, an enthusiasm for fun of learning, and the highest and utmost advantageous standards available to help achieve the highest potential in the education process.

The PTO is a Non Profit Organization. The PTO has a minimal operational budget. The money that is raised through the PTO is used to benefit our children.
Below is a partial list of the items purchased and supported in previous years with PTO donations and fundraising proceeds.

  • 3 smartboards for the 4th, 3rd, and 2nd grade pods

  • A parent lunch area with tables and benches
  • Wireless headsets for the smartboards in kindergarten and first grades

What Fundraisers Does the PTO Do?
