The purpose of Caldwell Elementary's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is to promote a sense of community among students, parents and guardians, teachers, administrators, and citizens of McKinney. The PTO supports Caldwell Elementary's diverse population and dual language program by embracing the vision of "Two Languages, Un Corazón."
WHAT DOES PTO DO?
PTO hosts family events like our annual Back to School Picnic, Pizza on the Playground, and Spring Dance. We fundraise for field trips, school assemblies, and larger projects like our goal to create an outdoor classroom. We provide support for our teachers and staff through our classroom helper program and classroom supply donations, and we show appreciation with a monthly treat. PTO offers services to our families such as the school yearbook, spirit wear, and school supply packs.
