About Us


  • provide a forum where parents & staff can meet, discuss & have programs related to their mutual concerns for CLES

  • promote the welfare of children at home, school & community.

  • provide a close relationship between home and school to ensure cooperation between everyone involved.

  • secure every child the highest advantages in physical, academic and social education.

How we achieve this

The CLES PTO looks to support our CLES staff and students throughout the year. All donations & time we receive from families goes directly toward CLES events & school resources. Each year we do our best to plan activities the current families and staff look to enjoy.

Below is a list of the 2021-2022 activities we support:

  • Staff Appreciation Events

  • Fall Festival

  • Wreaths Across America

  • Holiday Shop

  • Red Bird Run (Spring)

  • Daddy-Daughter Dance

  • Mother-Son Event

  • Ice Cream Sales at Lunch

  • Passive Fundraising

  • Eco-Club

  • Helps to implement programs with Art, Music and PE

  • School landscape & grounds

  • Staff Reimbursement of up to $250/year for classroom supplies

Our Annual Fundraising GOAL for 2021-22 is $30,000
