The Branch PTO, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, supports the school staff, strives to enhance children’s educational experiences, and assists in efforts to solve school needs through volunteering and funding. PTO stands for Parent-Teacher Organization, consisting of families and teachers working together to support and enrich all students. Our PTO brings these groups together to share thoughts and ideas about programs and activities that create a better educational experience for our children. We strive to create an atmosphere where teachers, administrators, and support staff can do their best work and so can our children.
Branch PTO is open to all parents and guardians of Branch Elementary Students. Get involved and help us make this school year the best is can be!
A great way to get involved and learn about what is going on at Branch is by attending a PTO General Meeting - typically held the last Thursday monthly at 9am in the MPR*

In order to achieve our goals, we have to fundraise. We raise money each year we provide teacher/staff grants, tutoring, host assemblies, field trips, and camps, as well as provide supplies, equipment, and improvements. We did not do any fundraising for the 2020 - 2021 school year, yet we were able to use our reserves to fully fund our budgetary promises. Which makes this year's fundraising efforts even more important for our students. Our primary fundraiser is the Branch Auction where we raise the majority of our budget each year. We additionally raise funds through Fall pumpkin sales, a Jog-a-thon in the Spring, and miscellaneous fundraisers through the school year.
We form committees for each event to help make each one successful.
