creating positive school experiences

Ely Public Schools Logo

We are dedicated to supporting the Early Childhood - 8th grade Ely School teachers, staff and students through programs, events and fundraising activities. 

Ely middle school students

We help in whatever way we can: by providing transportation costs, by running book fairs, by planning social activities, by chaperoning field trips and dances, and by showing our appreciation for or teachers. 

To fund our mission, we sell Spirit Wear, organize fruit sales, two Scholastic book fairs, solicit donations of goods from businesses, and ask families for the gift of their time, energy, and talents.


Ely PTO strives to enrich the learning experience of students in Early Childhood - 8th grade, to help connect their families to the Ely Schools, and to support our school teachers and staff as needed.
