Reminders: PTO Meeting on Friday, April 19th at 7:45am in Poe Cafeteria
Closed campus for STAAR Testing dates -

It's not too late to sign up for POE SOCIALS!
Poe Socials are organized by the Poe PTO for people to socialize and raise money for the school. All proceeds go to Poe. Normally, when we have a Socials Chairperson, we hold socials all year long. This year, the Auction Committee worked with parents and teachers to offer them using the Poe Auction website. Some are for certain grade levels. Some are adults only. Some are hosted by teachers. Some are To Be Decided on a date, but the hosts will contact you to make it work. Some are a Poe tradition, like Dogs on Deck with the Principal!


VIPS approved volunteers may now sign up through the end of school!
