Welcome Benchmark Families!


The purpose of the PTO is to enhance and support the educational experience at Benchmark Elementary and Preschool, by developing a closer connection between home and school. We do this by encouraging parental involvement, and improving the environment at the school through volunteer and financial support. As a charter school, Benchmark receives less funding than public schools, making your support for the PTO and its fundraisers even more important.  Our PTO is committed to fostering a supportive, creative, and successful environment within Benchmark and raising funds for various activities. 


We cannot do this without the support of the Benchmark community, and we want to encourage you to get involved! Volunteer opportunities are always available via the Benchmark Blast newsletter or the membership toolkit site under Parent Communication. We encourage all families to volunteer at least 10 hours per year. 


We will hold virtual monthly meetings regarding current and upcoming events, fundraising efforts, PTO budget, and goals.


Here are a few of the ways the PTO will keep our Benchmark community updated: 

  1. Benchmark blasts: A newsletter emailed every Sunday with Benchmark news and events. Please email ptobenchmark@gmail.com if you’re not getting the blasts. 
  2. Remind: Download the Remind app and enter the class code @c3f83k6. 
  3. Flyers in backpacks
