Parent Teacher Organization

At CRES our PTO is a dynamic group of parents and teachers working to help our school be the best it can be! We organize volunteer efforts, support our teachers, bring in supplemental learning experiences, fundraise for a variety of events & projects, build relationships among families, and much more. We are always looking for more parents to become involved, in whatever capacity fits your family's schedule.

We meet monthly as a whole group usually on the third Thursday of each month. Check this site's calendar to be sure of the date. In addition to monthly meetings we occasionally meet in smaller groups depending on upcoming events and their planning. We try to make our monthly meetings act as both a time to share PTO information, as well as an opportunity for socializing and building relationships among parents at our school.

We are committed to offering childcare at our meetings in order to meet the needs of all families. We also translate our meetings in order to provide a common PTO experience for both English and Spanish speakers.

We strive to offer a variety of learning experiences for our parent community. We are working to bring in speakers and groups that support and benefit our community and also share new ideas and information to our families. Please be sure to contact us with your ideas!

If you have any questions, comments, thoughts to share, or concerns, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
