PTO Programs & Events

PTO underwrites various classroom enrichment programs, community events, school support needs, classroom spending grants, and technology investments with your generous pledge drive donations. Pledged funds are not used for extracurricular activities... they are invested in programs and events that all students have access to in the classroom, at the school, or for families to attend after hours.

Extracurricular activities are self-funding through registration fees paid by the participants. Separate registration procedures & guidelines are required to participate in these activities. PTO parent volunteers manage these programs and coordinate the details with contracted vendors &/or other Silver Oak volunteers to make it possible to offer such activities to our students.


Below are the programs, events and support that Silver Oak PTO provides to our school. We invite you to click through available links below to learn more about what we offer our students, both in the classroom and as optional programs... as well as how your pledge dollars enrich Silver Oak School.
