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.

Support

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.

Support Us When You Donate

Poe Partners is the PTO’s sponsorship program that reaches out directly to our community to partner with Poe to raise money, but most importantly, to show the students that we have a philanthropic community.

Support Us When You
Shop

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you.

Join our Box Tops school page and track how much we make from box tops. Our lifetime earnings are over $15,000!

Box Tops for Education is an easy way to earn more money for our school. The original process involved cutting the box top label off products purchased and sending them in to school to be collected and turned in for cash. 

Now there is a new way to collect box tops!



If you see this label, use the new Box Tops app to scan your receipt. Box Tops are still worth 10¢ for your school. The app will find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to your school's earnings online.
