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. 

 

As a Poe Partner, you can help support the following Poe Elementary PTO initiatives:

  • Capital Enhancements – with a 90-year old building and grounds, and an ever-expanding student population, we will use funds to create more learning spaces, beautify the grounds, improve the shared teacher spaces, improve our technology and make our school safer
  • Educational Enrichment – funding is used to supplement our 2-year old International Baccalaureate curriculum, the Writers in the Schools program, provide additional opportunities for our Gifted & Talented students and provide volunteer tutoring to those students who struggle with reading, math and other core subjects
  • Sustainability – funding is used to sustain our many recurring annual PTO programs including the safety patrol, grounds improvement and other community-building efforts

When you invest in the Poe Partner program, you are enriching the lives of students who can become the givers of the future.  We know that our students will benefit greatly from not only the support of the school community but also from great partners all over Houston.

FINE ARTS CAREER WEEK

Poe Elementary is a Fine Arts Magnet School and one week a year, Poe inspires its students K-5th by bringing in over 100 professional artists, writers, actors, musicians from the Houston Community to share their passion for careers in the Arts.  This program is unique to Poe and every artist generously donates their time to inspire budding artists.

 

ALL ART DAY

Every child at Poe gets excited about the “Art Day T-shirt” where they color and make their own as well as getting a chance to side-walk chalk all the Poe Elementary entrance.  Starting with Kinder all the way to 5th, every child is a celebrated artist.  This is a Poe tradition and a hallmark of the Fine Art Magnet Status.

 

INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL

Did you know that Poe is represented by over 80 countries in its student body of 800 students? Along with the Fine Arts Magnet, this is what makes Poe Elementary uniquely diverse.  Children at Poe celebrate each other’s cultures and it is recognized through a school celebration of diversity at the International Festival that many families from all over the world take part in organizing.

 

POE ANNUAL BOOK FAIR

Volunteers on the PTO work hard to make this a week-long celebrated event at Poe Elementary.  The event includes a well-attended “Family Literacy Night” and a “Grandparent’s Breakfast”.  The event allows for parents to send money for the kids to shop for books for their class. Literacy and inclusiveness is at the core of Poe and it would mean a great deal to can provide each child at Poe with the ability to purchase a book from the Book Fair.  Donations help each child shop with their class.
