Orion PTO

Empowering the Future of Our Children

A Note from our Co-Presidents:

Dear Orion community,


As second-term Parent Teacher Organization presidents, we are so happy to welcome you to Orion Alternative School, where two exceptional programs: Parent Participation (Co-Op) and Mandarin Immersion (MI) flourish on the same campus. These programs create a unique learning environment for our students and a strong sense of community for parents and guardians.


As a parent or guardian of a student at Orion you are a part of the Starship Orion PTO.


With your help, we can greatly enhance our children's educational journey. Parents guide the direction of the PTO and we had a successful year of growing, learning, and thriving together in 2023-2024. In this upcoming academic year, we look forward to working with families to foster continued growth, improve our students’ learning environment, model teamwork and kindness.


While our school's programs employ different teaching styles and methods, there is a shared understanding that the active involvement of our families is crucial to our success. At Orion, we provide numerous opportunities for families to engage in and outside of the classroom, ranging from material preparation to leading art lessons or co-hosting campus events to planning and chaperoning field trips. Our teachers value the interaction with families, and our community thrives on the connections we build with one another. 


We encourage you to explore the various volunteering opportunities and sign up for those that align with your interests. Together, we can create a vibrant and enriching experience for our children at Orion Alternative School.
