About the PTO

The Isaac Dickson Elementary School (IDES) Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) supports the school's mission to build a community of engaged, active, hands-on learners.

IDES Vision:
We are a community that supports the whole child while empowering all students to become independent, life-long learners.


IDES Mission:
We value the diverse cultures that our students bring to the learning community. We provide opportunities for active, hands-on experiences that enhance learning and build intellectual capacity. We explore together in ways that make each student feel safe, confident, appreciated, and inspired. We emphasize our relationships to one another, to our local community, and to our world.

IDES Culture:
We want our school to be a place where our students and staff feel safe, loved, supported, and valued by one another. We empower each other to do hard things. We strive to be lifelong learners.
