Parent Teacher Organization

The Parent Teacher Organization is a non-profit organization that works with the children's teachers and the principal to enhance the social and educational programs at Cambria Elementary School. With money raised from our fundraisers we provide educational materials, recreational activities, field trips, and quality programs throughout the school year.

The cost to join PTO is only $5.00 per family. The membership drive begins on the first day of school and is rolling through March. Chaperones for any PTO-sponsored field trips or events must be members of the PTO,  meet requirements of the school volunteer form, and have their PA Child Abuse History and PA State Police Request for Criminal Record check. Copies will be kept In the schools office and by the PTO.

Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM in the school cafeteria and include a variety of informational speakers. PTO sponsored programs and trips are listed on the schools monthly calendar. We offer at cost or discounted items through our sponsored events Book Fair, Santa's Shop, and Spirit Wear sale.

On-going collection programs: Box Tops For Education, Labels for Education (former Campbell's labels until this program ends), Tyson labels for students, Giant Eagle Apples for Students, My Coke rewards for schools, and Target Red card program, Amazon Smile program.
