Riojas Elementary PTO
Our mission is to bring parents and teachers together to promote a strong school community. The PTO is driven by volunteers - and you are already a member. There are no fees to join!.
Why should you get involved?
- Children Benefit: Research shows participating in your child's school and showing engagement helps them perform better academically.
- The School Benefits: The PTO supports students and staff. It puts on programs and events to bring our school together as a community and enrich learning.
- Make Connections: Get to know teachers and staff. Make life-long friends with other parents.
We always need volunteers to make our programs and events successful. This does not always mean a commitment of your time - volunteering can be donating, using a special skill, providing local business contacts, or sharing words of encouragement.
