Our PTSO is made up of hard-working parents & teachers who pool their talents to provide practical support for our school.  


Funding takes the following forms:

Direct donation – Can be made at any point during the school year.  

School events – These are events that are hosted and directed by the PTSO. All proceeds are funneled back into the school.


There are so many opportunities.  Every hour of time volunteered increases the quality of education for our students.  Some positions demand a lot of time – others only an hour or so. To help you decide on your involvement, check our our “Volunteer Opportunities” listing.

What is the PTSO?

The Parent Teacher Student Organization is YOU! Parents, guardians, students and teachers at Camellia Basic Elementary School. The nominal yearly dues provide you with membership in the Camellia PTSO and adds to our school programs.

Our board consists of a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, a teacher representative, and the principal. We meet once a month at 6:00pm on Zoom the first Tuesday of every month. The PTSO supports our school by organizing fundraising events that provides additional funds for our classrooms for supplies, and other instructional needs. We plan these fundraising events together as a team. 

Why Join The PTSO?

Great Question! By getting involved at Camellia Elementary school you’ll be part of the solution and helping to make positive changes.  Our PTSO plays an important role by supporting teachers, staff and families while also advocating for enhanced programs that set our Cougars on a positive educational path.  We also play an important role in fundraising for curriculum-based programs and social events.
