South O' PTO Serves to Support the Children of South O' Elementary School

By fostering relationships among the school, parents, and teachers, it is our goal to enhance the educational experience by raising funds to provide additional equipment, services, and special projects for the school.

Staff Appreciation Week is coming up June 12th - 16th!

Please join the PTO as we celebrate the efforts of our fabulous teachers and staff. Each day during the week of June 12th - 16th, with the help of parent volunteers, we will be providing meals and small gifts. To make it an extra special week we are also suggesting optional gift ideas to help your child individually honor their teacher. Please click below to check out our Staff Appreciation Page to find out how you an volunteer and/or donate!

This includes Omar Salas (DJ CUE), Van & Gram, The Privateer, The PLOT, LTH, Beach Break Cafe, Anitas, Cream of the Crop, Winco, Vons, Camino Real Orthodontics and the Oceanside Police Officers Association.
