About Us

Starship is the PTO for Orion Alternative Elementary School in Redwood City, California. We believe that when you have both parents and educators working together in a close-knit community, children gain confidence, self-awareness, and the motivation to succeed. Orion’s mission is to focus on the education of the whole child while nurturing compassionate global citizens.


Volunteer opportunities

Looking for hours and ways to contribute to our community? There are lots of opportunities to volunteer at Orion:

  • Talk to your child’s teacher: do they need help in the classroom? Perhaps you can reimburse them for supplies they purchased.
  • Check out upcoming school events; a lot of help is needed to get events going and cleaned up.
  • Do you have a special skill that could be helpful on one of our committees?
  • Ready to take on a leadership role? Talk to a Starship officer about open opportunities.

There are so many ways to help out at Orion!
