Pin Oak Directory Update and Advertising Opportunity

It’s time to update your student information for the directory. POMS PTO collects your information online and then gives you secure access to the online system.  To add or update your information, please head to:

invitation code: Chargers

If you join the PTO at $50 or higher, you will receive a printed copy of the directory in October.

How do you access the online directory?
Once we have received and reviewed your family’s information, you will receive an email with login instructions.

What’s so great about the ONLINE directory?

  • It’s secure – your family will have a unique login and password and the directory can’t be lost or stolen.
  • It’s free – you can search by student’s first name, grade, teacher and family last name.
  • You can create your own custom list of frequently called families.
  • You can access the family directory from any internet device: your computer, smart phone, iPad, etc.
  • Is it secure? YES! All data is stored behind secure firewalls and can only be accessed by authorized users with a validated username and encrypted password. All data is viewed and passed using SSL encryption.

We are accepting advertisements for the 2018-2019 Directory. Ads and payments are due September 15, 2018.

Join our 2018-19 PTO Leadership

Join our 2018-19 PTO Leadership

It’s that time of year when we start to plan for the year ahead. A part of that process is to reach out to our POMS families to help fill all the volunteer positions that are needed to make our PTO run smoothly next year.

Our PTO is a dynamic organization that exists to support our school and its faculty, enrich our children’s education, strengthen our sense of community, and enhance student life. To support that mission, we encourage all members to participate in some way in PTO events and programs.

We appreciate any help you can offer and there are roles to fit everyone’s schedule and interests – five-minute tasks to five-hour (or more!) jobs. Volunteering is a great way to meet and get to know other members of our community, and it’s fun.

If you are interested in being part or our 2018-19 leadership please reach out and see what roles are still available.

Julie Malin, President Elect
