Dear Central Families,

Welcome to Central Elementary School!   Hopefully you've heard of the PTO through the various activities or supplies and programs we have supported financially at school.  Providing these fun things is important to us, but our work goes beyond raising money.

One of our key missions is to develop united efforts that will secure, for every child, the highest advantages in physical, intellectual, and social education.  We are always eager to find more great people like you to help us meet this goal.  Other special people in your child's life may be eager to help as well, and we are so happy to have them providing a positive influence for our students.

Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education have better grades and fewer discipline problems. Involvement at the school also makes it easier to establish friendships with teachers, staff, and other parents.  We promise the time you give our organization and the school will be worth your while!

We don't expect a huge time commitment from volunteers, PTO membership is free to everyone, and we would never ask you to give more of yourself than you are able.  An hour can be a big help to our group and the school, and we have positions and tasks to fit all schedules, interests, and abilities.  Just let us know whether a program, event, or activity interests you and when you might be free to help.  

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  Together, we can make a tremendous impact at our school!

We wanted a way to thank our parent volunteers + spread the word about the joy of volunteering at school + encourage parents to participate in all aspects of the PTO, so we came up with a free t-shirt incentive program!  In order to qualify for a fun new shirt, parent volunteers need to accumulate 3 points through the following:  volunteering at a PTO sponsored event (1 point each), serving on a PTO Planning Committee (2 points), and attending at least one PTO parent meeting.

Ready for your new shirt?  Submit Your Volunteer T-Shirt Request Here!


Each event or project sponsored by the Central PTO has one or more Committee Organizers responsible for organizing event or project details, communicating with volunteers and the Board, and meeting budget or fundraising goals set by the Board.  If you are interested in helping with any of these events, please click the "View Contacts" button below to view a current list of Committee Organizers and their contact information.  If no Organizer is listed and you are interested in learning more about becoming a Committee Organizer, please Contact Us here!
