The Flatirons PTO is dedicated to supporting our school community and the education of our students in a number of ways. While a key role of the PTO is to raise funds to support this effort, there are many opportunities for parents to be involved, besides the fundraising effort itself. Much of our fundraising effort is sent directly to the classroom and for school-day extracurricular activities: for example, we fund teacher classroom support, exciting and inspiring school assemblies, and field trips as well as support other requests made by the staff to help them provide an ultimate learning experience for our children. In addition we coordinate many volunteer activities and events, provide a forum for communication between parents and staff, and serve as a parent-based liaison between our school and the District. The Flatirons PTO meets monthly during the school year to review events and activities, make budget decisions and share in the success of our fabulous elementary school.

Our Fundraising Philosophy: The Flatirons Annual Giving Campaign
The Flatirons Annual Giving Campaign is the name for our school’s unique fundraising effort. Each family is asked for an annual tax-deductible donation. 100% of this money is used to support our children's education. The majority (75%) pays to have para-professionals in our classrooms which greatly increases our teacher to child ratio. The remainder pays for: classroom supplies and equipment, curriculum enrichment (assemblies, field trips), staff training, before and after school clubs and programs (Chess Club, Running Club, Dungeons and Dragons and more) and community events (Garden-to-Table, Fall Festival, Ice Skating party...).
