  • Oak Creek PTO


    Our Parent Teacher Organization is a nonprofit 501(c )(3) that was created to support, specifically, Oak Creek Elementary. There are three major components to our purpose. The first is to increase communication between teachers, families and students. The second is to bring our community together. The third is to provide for our students in the greatest need.

    We give out teacher grants, organize great family events, supply materials to our school, including upgrades to our playground, and have rebuilt our school garden. Our money is raised through fundraising and grants. Donations are tax deductible. Our manpower are volunteers. We have moms, dads, grandparents and other family and community members that help in person or from home.

    Keep an eye on our school’s Coyote Newsletter each week for volunteering and fundraising opportunities. We would like to invite you to help create a wonderful Oak Creek Community for this year and years to come.
