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.


 

What is the Poe Partner Challenge?

The Poe Partner Challenge is the Poe Elementary School PTO general underwriting campaign that provides parents and community partners with an opportunity to give directly to the school and become a Poe Partner. All the money raised goes directly to Poe Elementary School and is critical to keeping our school covered for the upcoming school year and prepared for the future.
