Parent Teacher Organization
Welcome to the La Costa Meadows Elementary PTO!
The La Costa Meadows Elementary PTO would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning families!
The Purpose of the PTO:
- to help unite our school community through family activities
- to generate funds to support vital student programs
- to facilitate strong relationships between parents and staff
- to encourage pride, loyalty and participation at LCM
The PTO does not charge a membership fee and all LCM Parents and Teachers are members of the PTO. The PTO meets monthly and all LCM families and teachers are invited to attend our meetings. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month from 3:30-5:00pm in the school office. Our weekly PTO updates are communicated through both weekly emails known as "e-blast" (or Weekly Dolphin Update) as well as the Sunday or Monday evening telephone message.
Without your participation and support in fundraisers and our annual cash drive (also known as the WAVE fund), many programs would not be possible at LCM:
Music instructor Campus supervisors Student magazines
Science Garden instructor School assemblies Copy supplies
Art Program supplies PE Equipment Field Trip scholarships
Technology (iPads, laptops) Library books and supplies Teacher Appreciation
Computer software Teacher supplies Community Events
Online program licensing fees Safety Communication Equipment ... and more!
We are extremely grateful for the generous support of our LCM families and community! We invite you to take a deeper look into our different fundraising events. We have both active fundraisers (events such as the APEX Dolphin Dash, Halloween Carnival, WAVE cash drive & Dine Outs) and passive fundraisers (such as registering your RED CARD through Target, Corporate matching programs, and BoxTops). If you're wondering how you can get involved to help benefit our school, please consider offering your time to help plan or serve at one of our events or programs.
