PTO Welcomes Students & Families

Dear Ranger Parents and Guardians,


We would like to take this opportunity to welcome each of you and your families to Rattlesnake Ridge Elementary School. As the PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) board it is our responsibility to talk with you about getting involved in the school. But first, since this may be your families first time at Rattlesnake Ridge, we think that it is important to explain what the PTO is all about.


For those who may not know, the PTO is an organization of parents, teachers and our community. The PTO’s goal is to foster a nurturing and caring environment that strives for continued parent involvement in helping build a better education for our children. We also promote a school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work with the resources provided and help make school a fun learning environment. Through fundraising efforts, the PTO is able to donate funds to purchase educational materials and equipment, provide assemblies and fund student activities.


For the PTO to be effective and a true representative of the school, it is essential to have parental involvement from as many parents as possible. There are endless possibilities of ways you can help. Whatever your own level of flexibility, Rattlesnake Ridge PTO always appreciates their parent volunteers, as does our teachers and staff. By volunteering, you will get to enjoy interacting 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 here at Rattlesnake Ridge. Please consider volunteering, it really does make a difference in the lives of our children!


We invite you to come to our monthly meetings to see what we are all about…we need your ideas and energy! Becoming active is easy and it really makes a difference!


Rattlesnake Ridge PTO can be contacted by emailing rattlesnakepto@gmail.com or by calling the school 352-7000 and leaving a message on our school voice mail.


Have a wonderful school year!
