Research shows that parental involvement in school boosts student performance and confidence. Whether you volunteer every day, meet once a month with the PTO, or attend school family functions, your presence is valuable to us. Please see below for PTO information and parent volunteer opportunities. This page will continuously be updated so please check back frequently.

Ellis Parent Organization
The main purpose of the Ellis Parent Organization is to build strong working relationships among parents, teachers and schools, in support of our students. EPO is organized for the purpose of supporting and enhancing the educational experiences of the School’s students by providing an organization through which the parents, school, and teachers can work cooperatively; and providing financial support for programs funded outside of the annual school budget. EPO programs include recruiting and coordinating volunteers, providing special recognition in awards ceremonies or through other activities, organizing parent education events, planning teacher appreciation activities and much more.
“When parents are involved in their children’s education at home, they do better in school. And when parents are involved in school, children go farther in school and the schools they go to are better.” Join the EPO and watch our children soar."
