Our Mission

The Poe Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) helps support our school through volunteering and also helps provide additional funds to continue programs, sponsor events, and purchase items by supplementing the funding from TEA and HISD. As part of the Poe community, EVERYONE - including parents, teachers and administrators - is automatically a member of the Poe PTO, and we welcome you to be part of the effort to provide Poe students with a strong foundation for learning and success.

Fundraising at Poe

Our PTO is known for a long–standing partnership of families, school administration, teachers and students promoting a strong foundation for learning and success.

The Poe PTO provides volunteers and financial support for educational programs, field trips, career week, technology upgrades, campus improvement projects and preservation of our historic building.

What is Poe Partners?

Poe Partners is the Poe PTO's annual giving campaign that helps fund programs and projects that make Poe Elementary a safe, beautiful and fulfilling learning environment for our children, and that are not otherwise covered by the school’s budget.

The Poe Partner program is geared for corporate partners and families alike.  At the higher giving levels, your company can receive a multitude of marketing benefits.

Corporate Matching

The Poe Partner Corporate Matching Gift Program is a great fundraising opportunity for Poe Elementary PTO.  Many Fortune 1000 companies, including here in Houston, offer a “matching gift program” where the company will match donations up to a certain amount made by their employees to non-profit organizations (such as Poe Elementary PTO).
