Please Join Our PTSO!

The Toll Gate Elementary School PTSO is a dynamic group of parents, teachers, and students that work together to enrich our children’s elementary school experiences. As a PTSO, we depend on our volunteers to make all of our endeavors a success, from raising money to purchase playground equipment to providing our amazing staff a meal during busy conference nights.

Studies show that parents who are actively involved and engaged in their child’s education make a huge difference in that child’s achievement. The TGES PTSO hopes that you will be involved. We provide volunteers opportunities of all shapes and sizes to fit a wide variety of talents, time commitments, and budgets. If you are interested in becoming part of the TGES PTSO, just do one or all of the following:

Show up to our monthly PTSO meetings held the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the media center and share your ideas and opinions. The first PTSO meeting for the 2017-18 school year will be September 21.
Sign up to receive updated volunteer opportunities via Sign-Up Genius (to sign up, just e-mail us at and we will add you to the contact group).

Everyday Ways to Help the PTSO

Everyday Ways to Help Support the PTSO:

  • Box Tops– Clip out and send in Box Tops that are found on hundreds of items from cereal to office supplies.  The Box Tops program has earned over $16,000 for TGES since the school was established.
  • Kroger Rewards– You can earn money for TGES by simply swiping your Kroger card every time you go grocery shopping. Just visit Kroger’s website and designate Toll Gate Elementary PTO as your charity.
  • Giant Eagle Apples for the Students- Go to Giant Eagle’s website, create an account, and then register your Giant Eagle Rewards card. Visit the My School Programs page on the Giant Eagle website and search for Toll Gate Elementary. Then every time you shop at Giant Eagle, points will be credited to the TGES account and can help earn anything from playgroup equipment to classroom technology.
  • Shoparoo App- Just download the Shoparoo App on your smart phone, designate Toll Gate Elementary PTO, and then remember to take a quick picture of all your grocery store receipts (from Walmart, Kroger, Meijer, Target, Aldi and more) to earn money for the TGES PTSO.
