The Oak School PTO promotes connections between school and home, provides timely communication, and presents many opportunities for parents to support and enhance the Oak School experience for the students, school community, and Oak families.

What does the PTO do?

The PTO supports the following:

Hootiegram- weekly email newsletter with important information and dates for Oak School events and activities.
Homeroom Representatives - 28 parent volunteers support homerooms, coordinate school to home communications and help plan homeroom events (i.e. holiday parties, special occasions, teacher gifts, etc.)
School Directory- updated annually and available online.
Community Speaker Series- provides programs and resources to help parents better understand the educational experience in our district and support the parenting of students in and out of the classroom
•PTO Website- information about current Oak School activities
Committees- support and run all 32 Oak School committees including Staff Appreciation, Blah Buster, Weekly Lunch-In, Parent/Child Events, Holiday Market, Welcome for new parents, Oak Parent Night, 5th Grade Events, Culture Night/International Fest, Science Fair, and Field Day.
Enrichment- provides afterschool programs for students K-5 at school
Angel Fund- family assistance to defray additional costs of school.

We have 216 parent volunteers who comprise our Oak School executive board committees and room parents. We work together to make Oak School and our community the best for our students. Your contribution to the PTO determines whether school events happen. To date, 61% of Oak families have paid the annual dues of $50 per family. We would love to get to our goal of 100% participation.

Contributions can be made through and your support is much appreciated.
