About the EES PTO
What does the PTO do?
The primary purpose of the Elon PTO is to raise money for various school projects. We sponsor events during the school year, including fundraisers, providing refreshments for school programs, T-Shirt sales, and partnering with local businesses like Funquest, Country Cookin, Biscuitville and Sluggos. Our PTO Fundraisers have helped provide:
  • A new school playground
  • Dictionary sets for the classrooms
  • $100 per teacher annually for school supplies
  • Brain Pop and Brain Pop Jr. computer programs for the classrooms
  • Nature Zone Program for 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades
  • Supper for faculty on Parent/Teacher Conference nights and Open House
  • D.A.R.E t-shirts
  • SOL treats for students during testing days
  • Refreshments for Winter and Spring musicals
  • Pizza for Literacy Night
  • Sponsor an Angel Tree recipient
  • Santa Event
  • Lunch for faculty/staff during Teacher Appreciation Week
  • AR Books for the library
  • Playground balls
How can you be involved?
All parents are a part of our PTO! Volunteering with the Elon PTO is a great way to be involved with the students and teachers at our school. You can show your support for our school by participating in fundraising activities and volunteering at PTO sponsored events. Anyone wishing to volunteer or chaperone must complete a background check prior to volunteering. We strongly suggest doing this as soon as possible as it can take at least six weeks to complete. You can have this done at no charge at:
                                            Amherst County Public Schools
                                                     School Board Office
                                               Office of Human Resourses
                                                  153 Washington Street
                                                      Amherst, VA 24521
                                                          (434) 946-9376
There are also many ways you can volunteer from home!  Ask a teacher or a board member today how you can help.
