Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)


The main goal and purpose of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is to actively work to support Camas Ridge teachers and staff in their efforts to educate students. The PTO performs three essential functions for the school – communication, community building, and fundraising.

All parents/grandparents/guardians are automatically members of the PTO. There are no dues and everyone is encouraged to get involved at any time in whatever capacity they have available. The PTO is a safe, caring learning community based on the Camas Ridge principles; scholarly, creative,compassionate, inclusive, respectful, welcoming, and safe.

Communication

The PTO uses a facebook group for frequent information sharing and an electronic newsletter/mailing list for less frequent communication (2-3 times monthly) and event reminders. The email address to use for reaching the PTO is camasridgepto@gmail.com. Mail can be directed to the office.

Meetings Every 3rd Tuesday

The PTO holds a meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. Wes Flinn, Camas Ridge’s principal, delivers an update on school-related business at each meeting. Meetings are an opportunity for families to become informed about issues or changes taking place at the school, as well as to offer a parent perspective on decisions being made. PTO meetings are open to all Camas Ridge families and free childcare is available at all meetings in the gym. Read the minutes from past meetings here.
