Elementary PTO Information

The Ballard Elementary PTO is a Parent/Teacher Organization for the Ballard Elementary Schools. As parents of elementary students, we work with the principals and teachers at East and West to help provide funding and resources for various items needed in each building.  A few of the things we have purchased over the years are: Classroom Technology Packages, Mimmios, Guided Reading Library, Sound System, Lego Sets, Laminator, Indoor and Outdoor Recess Equipment, and a start-up kit for the Watch D.O.G.S. program.

Another focus the PTO has is to encourage more community involvement.  We are implementing new ideas regularly and hope to provide an array of opportunities for families to get involved.  Watch newsletters and emails for upcoming events.
