    Welcome to the Deer Creek  PTO! Here you will learn about all of the wonderful things parents and teachers do to enrich the educational experiences of the children at Deer Creek Elementary School.



    What does PTO stand for?  Parent Teacher Organization

    Who belongs to the PTO?  All parents and teachers of Deer Creek Elementary

    Why PTO and not PTA?  PTO is an independent organization that believes every school is unique and has individual needs and goals, therefore all events including fundraisers benefit the local school.   A PTA is a national organization that requires membership and dues.  Events and fundraising efforts have to meet the national standards and a portion of the proceeds goes towards the national organization.

    Deer Creek PTO Needs YOU!   Nominations for President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Communications Director officer positions are open until September 27th.Complete the nomination form and return it to the office by September 27th. Voting will be held at the PTO Meeting on October 7th.     Click here for more information 



    Save the Date: PTO Meeting November 4

    Join us for our next Deer Creek PTO meeting at 6:30pm on Monday, Novemberr 4th.   If you attend the meeting, your children will be entered into a drawing to receive a popcorn party for their class! And as always, free childcare is provided.

    Budget Meeting

    The PTO will meet to decide how to use their funds on October 20th at 6:00pm at Billiards.  Anyone who wants to join is encouraged to attend! 



    Fundraiser Pick Up

    The fundraiser was a huge success!  Our preliminary total of funds raised is $11,108!   Please pick up the fundraiser items on October 30th from 2:45-6:00pm.  ALL items need to be picked up at that time.  The school has no way of storing frozen goods.   We need parent volunteers to help with fundraiser pick up.  A sign up sheet will be posted to the PTO Facebook page in the coming week.

    Bring us Your Box Tops

    You can now find our PTO on the Box Top app!!   You can scan receipts to earn box top rewards for Deer Creek!   The PTO has voted to set a goal to earn $1,000 in box top money this year.  We want to use that money to purchase a large popcorn maker for future events.
