Family Teacher Organization
The Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) at Reiche Community School plays a significant role. The PTO collaborates with teachers to provide fulfilling academic, cultural and physical enrichment activities for our students. The PTO also promotes parent volunteerism to build strong relationships between parents and the school and to foster a welcoming and engaging community. The PTO’s contribution of ideas, time, energy and passion help make Reiche what it is today.
Our fundraising efforts such as the increasingly popular Reiche International Road Race and Silent Auction and several other initiatives help raise funds for enrichment activities during the school day (yoga, swimming, and dance), assemblies, curriculum enhancement and investment in technology. Additionally, the PTO collaborates with teachers to help supplement the school curriculum. Coaching Odyssey of the Mind teams, hosting events, funding field trips and assemblies are some of the many ways the PTO adds to the student experience.
The PTO also supports the community by communicating information on news and events via PTO meetings and emails, and hosting family events throughout the year.
All parents are encouraged to become a part of the PTO and help build our school community by getting involved in those areas where they have a personal interest. Areas include: Fundraising, Events, Enrichment, Green Team & Grounds, Volunteerism in the classroom, and Coaching/Moderating Extracurricular events like Odyssey of the Mind.
Enrichment Programs Offered through the PTO
During the course of the year, after school enrichment classes are offered to Reiche students. Classes change each trimester but generally focus on art, music, dance, drama, science and foreign languages. There are three sessions (fall, winter, spring), lasting roughly 6 weeks with classes meeting for one hour, on a weekly basis. The cost per class is generally $60-$70; however, partial and full scholarships are available. Enrollment is on a first come, first served basis.
Parent Partnership Policy

We believe a vibrant and effective partnership among the school, parents, and families serves as the cornerstone for educational excellence leading to achievement for all students. We believe in open communication and parent/guardian/family involvement and encourage you to become as involved in the school community as your time permits. Together, we can inspire all students to love and value learning.
