Did You Know?!

The PTO provided over $30,000 of support to Otsego Elementary for the 2014/2015 school year!

Our parent and teacher volunteers are worth a MINION!

The Otsego PTO is devoted to the welfare and educational interests of Otsego Elementary School, each of its individual students and providing extra needs for the school through fundraising and volunteerism.

The PTO is built and run by parent and teacher volunteers. It’s an amazing group that directly fosters a sense of community and school pride while strengthening our childrens’ education experience.

JOIN US as we gear up for another big year. You can pick and choose the opportunities that best meet YOUR schedule, comfort level, and talents.

“I just wanted to pass along how impressed I was with the Christmas Store. … I loved the experience this year and it was great to see so many wonderful volunteers. They helped to make it fun for the kids but they also took the time to help the kids count their money and make appropriate choices which was above an beyond what they needed to do. These kids are so lucky to have so many people that care about them and work so hard to organize these experiences for them. Thank you and please pass along my appreciation to all those involved!”Katy Word
