The Eastridge PTCO is made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and community members. Together we work to raise funds to help bridge the gap between school budgets and the needs of teachers in the classroom. We also arrange for fun events and programs to help bring our families together into a community.
We meet the second Wednesday of each month at 6pm in the teacher’s lounge. Please consider attending a meeting to learn more about us and find out about volunteer opportunities. We are always in need of more helping hands! Find and like us on Facebook to keep up-to-date on what is going on around the school! www.facebook.com/EastridgeCommuntyElementaryPTCO/

- King Soopers. Use an Eastridge King Soopers Gift card to make your purchases and we earn 5% of your purchases in the store and the gas station. All you need to do is load the card with money (cash, check or credit card) before you buy your groceries and gas. If you are interested in a King Soopers card, please email us at email@example.com and we will deliver it to your child's classroom.
- Box Tops for Education and Labels for Education. Just cut them off the products you buy and send in an envelope with your child to school.
-Support our dinner nights. We will schedule several dinner nights throughout the year to area restaurants. A portion of the sales are donated to our school.
-Skate City nights. We will have 2 fundraiser nights at Skate City this year. A portion of the sales will be donated back to Eastridge.
-Boosterthon Fun Run. Our BIG fundraiser this year will be a fun run! This fundraiser will take place in the end of November. Instead of having our kids selling any products, we will raise funds through a character and fitness program. More information to come!
-Bingo Night. We have a fun evening of Bingo planned for the spring time. We use all funds from that evening to support a need in the school. Past examples include: computers for the lab and indoor recess games.
