Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

Cherry Knoll Elementary School PTO invites all parents to get involved in school activities and events and/or considering becoming a member of the PTO board. The PTO works throughout the year to bring quality enrichment opportunities to our students as well as enhance student programming. The PTO works to accomplish this by having fundraisers, organizing family activity nights, assisting in classrooms, and supporting school events. All of the PTO fundraising efforts go directly back to the children’s classrooms, school and playgrounds. Cherry Knoll is very proud to be able to pay 100% of our student’s field trips!

Please join us and learn more at our meetings and events. We welcome new faces, fresh ideas, and as always, help from parents and family members. Our meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month during the school year. Free childcare is available. Hope to see you there!
