What We Do

Our Story

The Parent Teacher Organization at Coronado Village Elementary School is a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. All gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law. We work to encourage interaction between family and school, serves as a source of support, and work with teachers, staff, and the community at large to improve our children’s educational experience. The PTO works very closely with the school administration in all its projects.

Together with Coronado Schools Foundation, we provide resources, volunteers, and fundraising for a number of PTO initiatives, including:

  • Teacher and staff appreciation events
  • Meet the Master’s Art Program
  • Annual match of district funding for the school library
  • Annual 5th-grade graduation celebration
  • Over $3000 annually per grade level for grade level teachers

And much more! We also host family and fundraising events such as Fall Festival, Jog-A-Thon, and movie nights.

Our Mission

The purpose of Village PTO is to foster a sense of support, pride, and enthusiasm within the Village Elementary School community.

We believe that relationships between students, teachers, parents, staff, and the community are a vital influence on the success of our children’s futures.

Through fundraising and family activities, our objective is to promote positive school/ community relationships and support school programs that enhance our children’s
educational environment.
