The mission of Prairie Creek PTO are:

  1. To promote the welfare of children and youth.
  2. To bring into closer relation the home and school, that parents, and teachers may cooperate in the education of children and youth.
  3. To help provide supplemental resources which enhance or enrich school curriculum.
  4. To foster pride in PCES throughout the community.

Prairie Creek Elementary PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is a chance for parents/guardians to become involved in their child's school based activities. You will also get the opportunity to interact with the staff and assist with school projects. Volunteers are an important aspect of making each child's school experience a success. Your involvement improves the quality of educational tools and opportunities we can provide for every student. We encourage all parents/guardians of Prairie Creek Elementary students as well as any Prairie Creek Elementary staff to attend PTO meetings.
