The Cypress Ridge PTO is an organization of Parents and Teachers who work hand in hand to support Cypress Ridge Elementary School through fundraising and family-friendly activities. PTO meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 6:00pm in the Media Center. For more information, “like” us on Facebook (Cypress Ridge Elementary PTO), or contact us via email at CRESPTO411@gmail.com.
We are currently in the midst of our membership drive. A membership drive form was sent home with each CRES student. Memberships are $5 per individual or $25 per business. If you didn’t receive a form or need another, click on the Forms tab. Cash or checks are accepted. Checks must be made payable to CRES PTO. Let’s make this year’s membership drive spectacular!

We often get asked - What does PTO do? Fund raising through the Membership Drive, Family Movie Night, Box Tops for Education, Discount Card Sales, BJ’s Membership Drive, Jersey Day, School Dance, and the Annual School Carnival all provide much needed funding for school-wide projects, programs and equipment. Within the last year, the CRES PTO has approved funding for thousands of dollars of Computers, Science Lab Dissections, Quilts to Books Supplies, Robotics Team Registration Fees, Headphones for Computer Labs, a Storage Shed, and a portion of the cost to Re-Surface the P.E. Pavilion Area. PTO has also spearheaded the recent drive for new playground equipment.
Becoming a PTO member DOES NOT commit you to volunteer at events (although it’s a bonus if you can!). Becoming a PTO member means different things to different people. It can help you stay informed, it can help you stay involved, it can help you earn volunteer hours. Keep in mind that your donation alone helps fund projects and/or equipment for our amazing school and students. If you have any questions about what we do, what we fund, or how you can help, please feel free to email us at CRESPTO411@gmail.com.
We hope to see you at our next meeting.
