PTO & Volunteering

  • Parent Teacher Organization

    The Sunnyside Elementary PTO is a very active supportive group of parents who are dedicated to supporting the education and educational experience of the children at Sunnyside Elementary.

    They raise and expend funds to enhance and improve the educational quality of Sunnyside Elementary including, financial support to classroom teachers, the purchase of classroom technology, books, classroom supplies, the procurement of educational assemblies, and the development and promotion of after-school enrichment programs and much, much more.

    They work in close collaboration with teachers, parents, administration, and community members to benefit the Sunnyside students and the school community. They encourage a positive, supportive atmosphere to enhance students’ educational and extracurricular experiences.

    Sunnyside PTO needs YOU! Our school depends heavily on the efforts of parents, grandparents, and even neighbors to volunteer their time and talents in support of our students. Your involvement is very much appreciated and lets students and school staff know that you believe school is an important place.
