PTO / Site Council

We are very proud of and grateful for the support we receive from our Garden Gophers both on campus and off.


It is our purpose to provide support for our children's educational needs and to promote open communication among the administration, teachers, and parents. We organize fundraising activities to purchase school materials and school enhancements that the school budget is not able to provide for otherwise.



helping handsThe School Site Council is a group of teachers, parents, employees, and students who work together and with the principal to ensure implementation of school goals and plans for improvement and that our students are learning in the safest and most positive environment possible. Members make decisions that will best serve the whole school community.  

The SSC/ELAC meets on the third Thursday of the month at 2:45 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
