PTO

On behalf of the entire San Elijo Middle School PTO, welcome to the 2020/21 school year.  The mission of SEMS PTO is to promote open communication and understanding between our parents and staff at San Elijo Middle School.  Our efforts serve to enhance and maximize the educational experience of every student while aiding them in achieving their highest potential. 

Traditionally, the PTO supported teachers in the school and classroom setting by providing and paying for supplemental resources and tools like PE equipment, Chromebooks, library books and supplies.  This has been accomplished by holding a limited number of fundraisers (Fund the Nest and the Color Battle), and through the generous support and contributions of our families and our community. 

Today (and likely throughout the entirety of the 2020/21 school year) our plans, programs and efforts will look different. We will be flexible to ensure continued support of and alignment with the needs of our students, families, teachers, admin and support staff.  As we navigate these new and uncharted waters, we ask for your continued support and involvement.

Your Support

While some of our previous years’ budgeted expenses are no longer necessary in this new learning environment, many new requirements have surfaced. We will do our best to fulfil those needs while continuing to fund previously approved programs & expenditures.  SEMS PTO is committed to maintaining the same level of support for our students, teachers, parents and staff, so we continue to ask for your financial support in any way that you are able to help.  Here are some of the ways you can support our students and programs. Every dollar counts and we appreciate your generosity.

  • Fund the Nest
  • Amazon Smile
  • Box Tops
  • Color Battle (TBD)


Your Involvement

The PTO does not charge a membership fee and all SEMS parents, guardians and teachers are members of the PTO.  The PTO meets monthly, and all SEMS families and teachers are invited to attend our meetings.  Please check the “PTO > PTO Meetings” section of the school website for exact dates and meeting links.

Our appreciation

We thank you for your generous support of our SEMS families and community.  We invite you to reach out to us if you have any questions, would like more information or if you would like to get more involved.
