Welcome to the webpage for the Countryside PTO! The Countryside PTO is a non-profit organization supported by parent volunteers. The purpose of the PTO is to work in the best interests of the children, to promote understanding and cooperation between parents and teachers, and to initiate and encourage ideas and activities in the interest of Countryside School. The PTO provides funding for school programming, resources, and technology that are not paid for by the district and also tries to provide a sense of community through all school, family oriented events. In the past, the PTO has funded the following:

  • Smart Boards for each classroom
  • Document Cameras for each teacher
  • Literacy Library
  • Staff development and training
  • Microphone systems for classrooms
  • Sound panels for multi-purpose rooms
  • Fitness Trail
  • Shuttle buses for PTO events
  • Staff requests ranging from replacing gym equipment, to ISAT prep materials, to classroom learning resources
  • Teacher allowances to purchase school supplies
  • Memory Garden and grounds beautification
