About PTO

"Wife and momma powered by love. Fueled by Jesus and coffee. Sustained by legos and wine."

"My name is Lorie Hollis and I have 4 students at Utica. I also have a senior at New Albany High School who attended Utica. I’ve been married for 3 years to my husband, Jeremy Risen. Professionally, I am a teacher for New Albany-Floyd County schools working as an ELA Interventionist at the Alternative School (grades 5-12.) I love Utica Elementary School and I’m honored to be a part of the PTO board"

Got great ideas? Come to a meeting! There are many ways you can contribute toward our causes, and every little bit that you commit goes a long way in helping us fulfill our mission. Participate as much or as little as you choose. Observers are welcome!

Meetings typically run for about an hour and are open to all adult members of the Utica  Elementary community. You can find the current PTO Meeting schedule on the Info page.

You can also visit our Volunteer page for more information on volunteer opportunities.

We hope to see you there!

How can I help?

All the amazing events, supplies, and programs funded by the PTO wouldn't be possible without the generosity of parents, family, and the community.

How we do it?

Thanks to the many families who contribute by participating in our fundraisers each year we host various activities in support of our school community.

Throughout the year, Utica Elementary PTO holds fun events to bring our students and their families together after the school day is done. 

We fund educational enrichment activities and program subscriptions for the students within the school day too. These virtual programs are chosen by our amazing teachers and are considered vital to their day-to-day teachings.

We support the UES Staff and students in other ways as well, including classroom supply reimbursements for every teacher and funding for our Teacher Appreciation acknowledgments.
