Riley Parent Teacher Organization
We're doing it for the kids!
What do we do? Well, here's the short list...
The PTO at Riley is very active. With our annual budget, we sponsor educational assemblies throughout the year, help pay for busing for all the field trips taken, give the teachers and support staff money for their classrooms, purchase playground equipment and other equipment and supplies used in the school, and we organize many community building events.

Every Riley Parent, Guardian, Teacher and Staff Person is an automatic member of the PTO. We welcome you to join us anytime.
We ARE having a Run-Raiser this year! This will be during regular scheduled PE time for each class on May 19/20. Volunteers needed (and allowed this year)! Donations can be made HERE. Thank you for your support!
Each year the Riley PTO hosts an annual fundraiser called the Riley Run-Raiser. This event is a donation based fundraiser where students bring in donations from family, friends, and businesses. Prizes are awarded to all students who participate. All students are rewarded with a fun obstacle course run at the end of the donation period. The main benefit of this type of event is that 100% of the profits go directly toward the PTO budget compared to approximately 30% from other fundraising methods, such as cookie, candy, or magazine sales.
