Poinsettia has a distinguished history as an outstanding school in our community, and the PTO has played an important role for decades.

Providing these valuable resources, in addition to assemblies, art supplies, and playground equipment, is possible only with your support. More than ever, we need your help to raise the money to fund these programs.  Information about additional fundraising opportunities can be found on the Poinsettia Fundraising page.
