If you are already a PTO member, but would like to sponsor a membership, please use this form.
What is the difference between the membership levels?
The levels are the amount you would like to financially donate to the school. Each level also comes with its own incentives, such as car decals, landyards, and shirts.
I purchased a PTO membership last year. Do I have to purchase a new membership this year?
Yes, PTO memberships are good for one school year and must be renewed each year.
Do I have to volunteer?
No, we greatly appreciate our volunteers, but we understand that not everyone is able to contribute their time in this way.
Do I have to attend meetings?
No, we have meetings throughout the year, but they are not required. If you are unable to attend meetings, your input is still valuable to us, and we welcome comments and questions from PTO members at any time! Our Executive Board meets every month, and we have general meetings through the year.

Why should I join PTO?
Joining the Van Raub Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a great way for you to show support for your child and to ensure that he or she receives the best education possible. You can attend the PTO meetings, volunteer your time for PTO events, and or support the fundraising events to help educate your child(ren). Your membership fees help support various school programs, educational tools, teacher grants and much more!
What does the PTO do for the school, teachers and parents?
PTO is an organization where parents and teachers come together with a common goal to better the educational experience. PTO provides financial support that is not covered by school funding, hosts events to enhance the family community, and goes above and beyond to show our support for all the teachers. Every child benefits from the programs and activities.
