Dear Parents and Students:
At Augusta Ranch Elementary, our goal is to partner with parents to help students grow as scholars and people of good character. We accomplish this through the generous donations of talent, time, and financial support provided by the Augusta Ranch families and our community partners.
The PTSO organization manages fundraising events, supports community service opportunities, coordinates teacher requests, and partners with business sponsors to raise money for our school.
This site will provide you with the latest updates on news and events related to our PTSO. We encourage you to review the site for information on upcoming meetings, events, and volunteer opportunities including running for any board member open positions. Please search the pages and let us know your feedback.
Thank you for your ongoing support! We could not be successful without your involvement and participation.

►SMOOTHIE DAY NOVEMBER 19TH.
In partnership with Jamba Juice on Signal Butte, we will be selling 8 oz smoothies to the students. Pre order forms will be going home two weeks prior to the delivery date. Smoothies are delivered in the classroom between 9 - 10 a.m. You will have the choice to choose between three flavors. Last year, we introduced the mystery flavor which turned out to be a hit. It will be back again. You can choose this flavor without knowing its ingredients, let your child taste it, guess the ingredients and run a chance to win a prize. Last year, we made $5,000 profit with the sales of smoothies. Thank you again for your support. Smoothies are sold for $3.00, cash only please.
