The mission of Pelham Oaks PTO is to promote a partnership between the faculty, staff and parents/guardians of Pelham Oaks Elementary School. Through volunteer opportunities, community building, and fundraising, we seek to strengthen and enrich each student’s educational experience. Here are some ways we do just that:

  • PTO gives each teacher gift cards twice a year to help aid in classroom supplies.
  • We provide volunteer support for book fairs, picture days, and other activities.
  • We show appreciation to our faculty and staff through special lunches, monthly coffee cart, teacher appreciation week and other special occasions.
  • PTO partner with local businesses to help show support within our community. Such as Publix and McDonalds.
  • PTO gives money for items needed around the school such as laminator, Door locks, welcome mats and other items in other areas.
  • NEW: PTO made a change this year. PTO is now sponsoring the LEADER IN ME program that will reach every child here at Pelham Oaks Elementary!


PTO has many different opportunities for you to be involved throughout the year!

  • Publix - Download the app and select POES as your school and Publix will give back a percentage of your total purchase. Easy as that!
  • Membership – Sign up today! By signing up, you show your support for the teachers and staff at POES.
  • Box Tops – Look out for box tops on participating grocery items. Clip the box tops and turn them in to POES through your child’s folder. These can be turned in any time of the year.
  • Coffee Cart – PTO has regular coffee cart where volunteers will go to each class and offer snacks and other treats to teachers and staff to show their love and support.
  • Teacher Luncheon – We offer duty-free lunch for teachers and staff. This is done by parents or businesses bringing in different food items while volunteers monitor the class lunches.
  • Spirit Night –Join us on these nights and hang out with teachers and staff of POES. Enjoy dinner with your family while supporting POES!
  • Fun Run – This is a school-wide event where all students of POES can participate! PTO partners with the PE dept to promote healthy activity while having fun! Volunteers are needed and donations are being accepted now!
  • Santa Shop – This is one of the most memorable events POES hosts each year! Each child is able to shop and purchase gifts for family, friends and pets!This is a great way for you to be involved and be a part of POES family!
  • Teacher appreciation – We offer one week, typically in the spring, where PTO will organize opportunities for students and parents to bring in treats, school supplies, gifts or other items, each day to show appreciation to our teachers and staff of POES.
