Walk the Ridge

Paris Ridge PTO is committed to ONE fundraiser per year with additional “No Cost” opportunities to support our school (below).  

Walk the Ridge 2023 will be held Friday, September 22nd.  Our school goal is to raise $18,000.  This money funds the PTO budget which was approved at the September community meeting.  The budget supports Education Enrichment, Family Involvement, Student Programs, Staff Appreciation, and more!  Thank you for your support and commitment to Paris Ridge!

What happens at a PTO Community Meeting?

Our community meetings will include updates on upcoming events and school initiatives from both the principal and the PTO board.  Community meetings are a time for brainstorming, making connections to local resources, sharing ideas and input, reviewing the budget and making necessary adjustments as a group, and getting to know each other.  We work to keep the agenda to one hour.  There will be opportunities to get involved beyond the meeting itself, but nothing is required.
