About the PTK

PTK stands for Parents, Teachers, and Kids

The Carlos Gilbert Elementary PTK brings the teacher-parent-student community together to make the very most of our awesome school. There's room for everyone at this table and we're all better for it - especially the students that we are all here to see learn and grow.

The PTK actively raises money in order to fund programs and activities including:

  • Grade level programs like dance, theater, fish-raising, and cooking

  • Reimbursements for classroom expenses

  • Club and team stipends

  • Tutoring

  • Field trips and activities

 

Come to the next PTK meeting to share your ideas or just listen!

Get Involved

There are many ways to volunteer with the PTK! 

 

All levels of participation are welcome.

If you have even a little bit of time or a talent you think would be helpful to the school, the kids, the teachers or the parents of Carlos Gilbert Elementary, we would love to hear from you. If you're just curious about what we are doing, please drop us a line or come to a meeting!

If you are interested in volunteering, email Jana Amacher

Be a Room Rep

Room Representatives are the bread and butter of the PTK.  The Room Rep parent volunteers act as liaisons between the PTK, the teachers and the classroom parents to help with communication and planning of any special events. If you are interested in being a Room Rep, please email Jana.  A classroom can have as many room parents as want to be involved, and each classroom typically has two to three Room Reps.
