Our mission as the Trails West Elementary PTO is to foster communication within our community by empowering and engaging families, teachers, school administration, and the surrounding neighborhoods of Trails West. We advocate for all children by promoting their health, well-being, and academic success through involvement in fun-filled activities and by raising funds to enhance our children’s educational experience.

Your PTO doesn't just raise funds. We also:

  • Purchase materials for the school

  • Approve grants for individual teachers, and school

  • Plan and execute school wide and community events

  • Manage in-school volunteer opportunities, such as the Watch D.O.G.S. program 

  • Sell school spirit wear
