Terraset Elementary School PTO

Frequently Asked Questions

PTO stands for "Parent Teacher Organization", which is an independent group which supports a specific school or school district. The Terraset Elementary PTO is a non-stock Virginia corporation with IRS non-profit status. The PTO was formed by Terraset parents and is run specifically for the benefit of our school and students. As a PTO, we determine our goals and keep all resources here at Terraset.
Any adult family member of a Terraset student (or legal guardian) and any Terraset staff member may join the Terraset PTO. Specific membership information will be available soon.
The Terraset Elementary School PTO was organized to promote the education of our students and help foster a positive environment for all children. Fundraisers benefit programs at the school such as student assemblies, the Outdoor Learning Center, and much more.
The PTO is managed by an Executive Committee, comprised of five officers and the chairs of standing committtees. Officers are elected annually with terms beginning the day after the end of the school year. PTO members are needed to help operate programs, organize events and support in-school PTO activities.
Volunteers are always needed! Please check back soon for more information on how to get involved.
Please feel free to contact us by email. You can currently contact the PTO at getinfo@terrasetpto.org

What's Ahead?

Tigers on the Town

Throughout the school year look for "Tigers on the Town", an opportunity to help the PTO and Terraset by dining at a local restaurant. You get a night off from cooking and the PTO receives a portion of the proceeds. Eating in? Your kids will love the chance to see friends and possibly Terraset staff as they eat. Watch your email, the events page, and Facebook for details.


Adult family members of students and all staff can join, volunteer and help run the PTO. Please join online today or look for signup opportunties at our meetings and events.
