PTO Welcome



The Ladera Elementary School PTO would like to welcome you to Ladera! We are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. The PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for the students, teachers, and parents. We like to bring the FUN!

Our purpose is to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs, to promote open communication between all members, and to encourage school spirit and pride. The PTO uses its resources, both manpower and monetary, to support all efforts of the staff of our school. We are looking forward to meeting all Ladera families and hope many of you get involved with our PTO this school year. Since every parent/family of a Ladera student is automatically a member of our organization; we hope all members will participate in our many events! Everything we do is based on volunteers and we are always looking for help to make a difference in the lives of our children. Every positive imprint we make on our children can go a long, long way. If you are able to give some time, day or evenings, please join us! Every bit of help, big or small, makes a difference in the lives of our students.

Examples of how the PTO has been able to give back to the school and our children include funding our PE teacher, Meet the Masters Art Program, schoolwide assemblies, buses for field trips, family events, restaurant nights, staff appreciation, positive behavior program, school yearbook, and so much more!

You can participate and help us make the 2023-24 school year great! We will have 3 general PTO meetings throughout the school year via ZOOM, which everyone is welcome to attend. All meeting information (including links) can be found on our PTBoard website at We look forward to working together to create a well-rounded, inclusive, and spirited school experience for our Ladera Leopards!
