Downey School PTO

“Our efforts serve to enhance the education of our children.”


The Downey Parent Teacher Organization’s mission is to:

  • support school and family social interaction and provide a non-biased forum for sharing information on issues that impact our children
  • promote open communication and understanding between parents and staff of Downey Elementary School
  • fund enrichment programs that align with the units of study in the classrooms
  • make our children’s educational experience the best that it can be!
