Santa Cruz PTO

  • On behalf of the PTO, we would like to welcome everyone back to school.
    You ask what is PTO?
    PTO stands for Parent-Teacher Organization, which consists of parents and teachers
    working together to share their care and concern for Santa Cruz students.
    The PTO supports school staff, helps promote student self-esteem, and assists the
    schools' needs through volunteering and funding.

    What is the PTO?

    The Board of the PTO shall consist of the following officers: Henry Fuentes - President,
    Melissa Ratto - Vice President, Alicia Rodriguez - Secretary and Celeste Hernandez - Treasurer.

    Lastly, we must not forget to mention our wonderful teachers, staff and volunteers.

    Who can be a Member?
    Membership is free and open to all adult members of the community whose children attend Santa
    Cruz Elementary. If you're a father, mother, guardian, and/or a person who work at
    Santa Cruz, then we welcome you to become a member.

    PTO Programs & Fundraising

    Our primary objective as a PTO is to provide and sponsor our school with funds, resources and events
    that will enrich, maximize and benefit the children of Santa Cruz. To meet this important objective,
    we fundraise.

    Here are a few programs that we sponsor and/or support: Annual Fall Festival, 
    Starry Starry Night, Annual Fall & Spring Book Fairs, Teacher Appreciation Week,
    Field Day and a variety of other fundraisers throughout the year.

    Here are some of the ABC's to assist Santa Cruz Elementary with our fundraising efforts:
