Creekside Charter PTO

  • What we do:  The purpose of the Creekside PTO is to enrich students’ academic and emotional learning, support teachers, and plan community events to connect faculty, staff and families.  

    • The PTO organizes activities and raises funds through various events throughout the year in order to provide some of the unique programs and events that make Creekside Charter stand out from the crowd!  

  • How we do it: We organize programs and events, coordinate parent volunteers, and we meet approximately once a month. All of our meetings are open to the public!  

    • PTO meetings are typically held on the 1st Tuesday of the month at 9am 

    • Parent volunteering and participation is the only way our amazing programs and events are able to happen. Kids love to see their parents at school, and learn valuable lessons from volunteers on campus and in the greater community.  Come join the fun!
