Here is a brief description of each of the programs the PTO runs.

  • Meet the teachers and Ice Cream social – An opportunity to bring in your school supplies and visit your classroom and meet your new teachers!  Then come outside to enjoy an ice cream treat and catch up with the Poe community after a long summer!
  • Movie Night – Occurs twice per year. Come hang out with your school friends in the Poe gym and watch a movie.  Bring blankets and pillows, concessions are available.  Please have parent 100715_poe_pto_bike_racksign permission slip prior to attending.
  • Cultural fair – Our Poe community is multi-cultural and we take one night in May to celebrate and learn all about the cultures represented in our school.  Offer to host a table to teach all about your culture, and come as a family to explore and learn!
  • Variety Show – an opportunity for all students to demonstrate a skill or talent to their Poe students.
  • Assemblies – PTO provides assemblies throughout the year to educate and entertain the students in partnership with the staff at Poe.
  • Family Dance and Auction – Our biggest fundraiser of the year!  Our Poe community comes together to bid on items in the silent auction from a variety of interests as well as a raffle for loaded baskets of items centering around a theme, all while DJs are providing the entertainment to dance!  This year it’s March 2, 2018
  • Teacher appreciation week – The first week in May is our week to appreciate our teachers for all their hard work through the year.  The PTO helps to organize events throughout this week to get the student body together in appreciating their teachers!
