Ada Elementary PTO

All families at Ada are automatically members of the Ada Elementary PTO. The PTO supports our school in many ways.

We organize and run several events and fundraisers throughout the year and promote community, cultural arts and education. We also support many in-school needs and earnings from the school.

Operating as usual

Ask your Ada Ranger how much fun they have at recess with all the snow we’ve gotten this week! They’re having the best time out there - check out those smiles!

We sure do appreciate all the Ada staff members that brave the elements to get our kids fresh air and fun each day! Brrrrrrrr ❄️☃️

We've gotten some questions at the PTO about how the bond proposal that passed last fall impacts our activities for this year so we thought we'd share one of the graphics the district created as a roadmap for projects targeted at each school.

The Ada PTO has historically been focused on activities for staff and students such as field trips, assemblies, fun family events, emergency funding for families in need, and in classroom needs supplemented by room parents support and teacher grants. Big infrastructure projects primarily left up to the district.

But we're excited to see the changes start happening around our building and will help direct parents to the updated resources as they come available!

We know it seems crazy to think about running right now with this snowy weather but…

The Ada Elementary cohort needs more 3rd and 4th graders for Girls on the Run! Check it out and let us know if we can direct your questions to the right folks! 🏃‍♀️

Thank you to all of our families who donated treats - without you the day wouldn’t have been possible. And a huge thanks to our chairs Kim Hoad & Tina Frain for organizing everything! We appreciate all of you!

Tonight is the night for our first restaurant night of the year at Vitale's Pizza of Ada from 4pm - 10pm🍕

It's dine-in only - who will we see there tonight in their Ada gear? 💚

We're highlighting another committee chair opportunity for the school Auction! While the Carnival is a fun, family give-back event, parents love this adult-only fundraising event where you get to connect with school staff and fellow families!

A little different from last year, we’d love to put on a smaller version with a focus on student/teacher experiences. We’re just needing volunteers ready to take on the challenge of committee chair or co-chair!

All of our PTO events are an 'all hands on deck' type of approach so you're not alone and its a great way to get to know other families and community members!

Check out our website for more information or drop us a note below!
