Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO)

The Elysian Parent, Teacher, Student Organization, funded through annual parent dues, organizes several yearly student and family events, in addition to showing appreciation to Elysian’s amazing faculty and staff via special recognition events. Your dues go directly back to our students and school for events, activities, programs, and materials.

The following are examples of what your dues help us accomplish and host:

  • Parties and Events. Upper and Lower School Dances, a Welcome Back to School Block Party, and a Halloween Party!
  • Field Day. Every year we buy the equipment, Rita’s ices for the kids, and host a special lunch for the 8th graders. When we have extra money, we are even able to buy Field Day t-shirts for the school!
  • Picture Day. Aside from hiring and helping coordinate Picture Day and Retake Day, PTSO provides complimentary pictures for free and reduced lunch ECS families!
  • Teacher Appreciation Events. Multiple times a year, PTSO coordinates something special for our teachers and staff to show how much we care.
  • Supporting the Arts. PTSO funds the rental of theater space for our children’s annual lower school and middle school productions.

PTSO is for PARENTS and we all can contribute!

A school is most successful when it comes together as a community, and the Elysian PTSO is the heart of it! There are many ways you can get involved… volunteer your time for an event, make food or donate materials for an event, or even add your value and expertise while serving on the PTSO board. We rely on every parent for help, ideas and support!

We are always looking for volunteers!! If you would like to help out next year or have any creative ideas for our community, please feel free to reach out! You can always email us at
