What is the Allendale Elementary PTO?

We are a parent/teacher volunteer run community organization that raises funds for all three of the Allendale Public School Elementary buildings. We plan events and volunteer our time for our 1500+ students from preschool through 5th grade.

How do we raise money?


PTO fundraisers like Poppin’ Popcorn and the March reAding Challenge & Fundraiser are our greatest fundraisers. We also throw family-centric special events, like this year's Boots & Bling Family Dance and family skate nights at Tarry Hall, for the entire Allendale Community that charge a small fee.

Where does the money go?

Every year, our PTO commits to $100 for each elementary classroom teacher ($8,000+ per school year). In the 2022-2023 School Year we were able to provide all of our AECC students with First Day of School student t-shirts, Falcon Reader book bags for all students pre-K-5th grade, Kona Ice for Field Days at AECC, Evergreen, and Oakwood, Field Trip Scholarships for any student in need, support to APS Mental Health Committee, support for the Allendale Encouragement Team (AET) providing them with the funds for staff encouragement and Teacher Appreciation Week, PTO Popcorn Days, PBIS rewards and incentives, 5th grade Camp t-shirts… and this is just a sample of what we financially support!
