Let’s keep the ER PTO Membership Drive going strong as we “Run” towards 100%!

A huge thanks for all the families and friends who have joined the Elliott Ranch PTO!

Your efforts with your time volunteering, your financial support, and just being involved at ER is what makes our school great.  Without all the parent and family involvement, our school would not be as excellent a place for our children learn and grow.

Each year the funds that the ER PTO raises goes to numerous programs that directly improve the experience of your child.  For example, the Library , Art Docent , Project Lead the Way (PLTW) STEM program, Harvest Dance, Spring Fling, Ice Cream Social are just to name a few of the many programs that the PTO directly supports.  This year , the PTO hopes to raise enough to provide Elliott Ranch with a new running track.  Many of you have seen the condition of our current “track” and have expressed concerns over safety for our children when they are at P.E. and recess.  If we could build a new track, it would coincide with our new APEX Fun Run program scheduled for this October and would serve ER students well for years to come.

Please join us if you haven’t already, to make Elliott Ranch Elementary School, the model that all other schools in not only Elk Grove, but the entire country strive to become.

Here’s our recognition board in the MP room, please fill our the membership form below and return it along with cash, check, or online payment to your child’s teacher, the front office staff, or administrator to be recognized on the board this year!

Thank You so much and GO ER ROCKETS!

Let’s make this a success and encourage our students to be great readers.  Sponsor forms must be turned into your child’s teacher by Friday, March 4th, 2016.


Please be sure that your child is supervised if going door to door for sponsors.  Checks can be made payable to Elliott Ranch PTO.
