Hello Crookshank Family!
Welcome new and returning families to Crookshank Elementary School. The Crookshank PTO invites you to join us in making a difference in the lives of our school community. The PTO is one of the largest volunteer organizations in the world. Over six million members in the PTO range from parents, grandparents, students, community leaders, teachers to administrators; each volunteering to better the lives of the children in their area.
We realize how important your children are to you and that you want the best for them in every possible way. Do you want to make a difference in your school, home, and community? Do you wish you can have more say and involvement in what happens in
your in your children's school? Being a part of Crookshank Elementary PTO can help you achieve that! Children learn more and have better lives when parents, school staff, students and the community work together.
PTO strives to bring these groups together to share thoughts and ideas about programs and activities that benefit children and families. Our PTO provides information and resources through newsletters, family programs, parent meetings, and other communication channels.
Some of the programs that Crookshank PTO sponsors are:
*Movie afternoons (proceeds goes to grade level sponsors)

Our goals are to continue our family and student programs and look forward to new suggestions for topics or programs of interest that you would like PTA to sponsor. When you become a member, your support will bring us closer to accomplishing these goals. Your involvement really does make a difference in your child's education.
