About Us

Starship Orion is the parent-teacher organization (PTO) for Orion Alternative Elementary School in Redwood City, California, and is a California registered public benefit association, with 501(3)(c) federal tax-exempt status. We are dedicated to the whole enrichment of our children and the support of our educators and community through fundraising and programs and events. Our mission includes providing financial support for educational programs and needs at Orion that are not currently funded by the district.

We are all of you!  Every current parent/guardian, teacher, and employee of Orion is automatically a voting member of Starship. Join us for a monthly Starship community meeting to have your voice heard: Starship Meeting Schedule 2018-19
