Our PTO is known for a long–standing partnership of families, school administration, teachers and students promoting a strong foundation for learning and success.

The Poe PTO provides volunteers and financial support for educational programs, field trips, career week, technology upgrades, campus improvement projects and preservation of our historic building.



Poe Elementary School has been educating heroes in Houston for almost 90 years. On Saturday, October 22, 2016, we will celebrate the heroes of Poe – our students, teachers, families and community – at the 68th annual Poe Carnival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The battle of “Heroes and Villains” will include games, great food, costume contests, music and so much more. 

 Support the 68th Annual Poe Carnival by becoming an underwriter.

The Poe PTO invites you to join our partnership of doing great things as a "Friend of Poe". Please celebrate with us on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at Poe Raven's Animal House. We will rock out at Warehouse Live from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. with Dysfunkshun Junkshun.

We hope that you will "relive the best six years of your elementary school education" and join us as a donor or underwriter for Poe Raven's Animal House! The Poe PTO's ability to enhance our children's education is possible because of the generous contributions of its donors. Thank you for your consideration and support.
