About the GPTO

The Grahamwood PTO is a non-profit parent/teacher organization which provides support to the faculty and administration of Grahamwood Elementary. In order to be effective, we draw on many different parent resources, so if you have time, money, or skills to donate, please get involved! 

The section below outlines what we do each school year. If you'd like to get involved in a specific area please contact committee chair.  Click on the Officers and Volunteer Leads tab for appropriate contact information.


Funded Programs

We support several programs each school year including three Teacher/Staff Appreciation Lunches, New Parent Brunch, art teacher supplies, Principal's Fund, library and the Outdoor Classroom.

Remaining funds are spent on larger projects based on school needs.  For a list of recent projects please scroll down. 


Other Programs

We also create the school yearbook, manage funds for our Fine Arts which brings several arts groups to the school for student enrichment, provide monthly breakfast for teachers to show our appreciation for their efforts, organize an annual Book Swap, assist in supporting students in need with uniforms and supplies, and more.



We collect donations and run fundraisers during the school year.  We also collect Box Tops for Education for cash and points (used to purchase items for the school), and encourage parents to participate in Kroger, AmazonSmile and Target card programs throughout the school year.
