Riverside Local Schools
Educating Excellence!



The PTO is an organization for all parents, teachers and friends of Hale Road Elementary. The PTO’s goal is to foster a nurturing and caring environment that strives for continued parental involvement in helping build a better educational environment for our children. Through membership dues and fundraising efforts, the PTO is able to donate funds to purchase educational materials, equipment and special programming for the students, faculty and school as well as being involved in efforts to help the local community.

For the PTO to be effective and truly representative of the school, it is essential to have parental involvement from as many parents as possible. Many working parents feel that they cannot be included in the PTO because they cannot come to every meeting or be on school grounds during the day. There are endless possibilities in ways you can help. Whatever your own level of flexibility, the PTO always appreciates our parent volunteers. Keep in mind that by volunteering, you will have a chance to interact with the kids, become friends with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference. Whether you have 30 minutes or a couple of hours, your ideas, your time, and your talents are truly needed. We can match your time constraints and interests to needed tasks. We have many ways in which Moms, Dads, Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents can contribute. Please consider volunteering, it really does make a difference in the lives of our children!

Membership is $5 per family and everyone is welcome! As the year progresses and the committees come together, you will be contacted by phone and/or e-mail from committee chairpersons. Come and see first hand how the students benefit from so many programs and all of our your hard work. Please come along and join us - this is your PTO and as a member you can help us achieve these goals.

We need your ideas and your energy.

We need you!
