To enrich the academic and cultural programs for the Coronado Elementary School community members.
We, at the Coronado PTO, take pride in everything we do. We strive to support our students, teachers and administrators in any way we can. We are a 501(c)3 so every dollar you donate supports teachers and students of Coronado Elementary.
President- Brooke Ewing. Hi everyone! This is my 3rd year serving on the board, first year as President. The last few years I was serving as the Mandarin Chair and loved it. I have 4 kids, 2 currently at the school in 3rd and 5th grade. We love Coronado Elementary and I’m happy to serve this year!
Vice President- Alissa Floman. Has served Coronado Elementary since her daughter started school! Runs behind the scenes of Trunk or Treat/Fall Festival- one of the favorite events at Coronado!
Secretary- Matt Logan. Originally from Pittsburgh, I have lived in Arizona for 13 years with my wife Courtney and our 3 kids who all go to Coronado. We live right in the neighborhood and love it. We love the outdoors, playing board games, and pizza night. It's been great being a part of the PTO Board and the Coronado community. Even though things are remote, we're already hard at work on ideas for how we can make this school year fun for the kids and the whole family!
Treasurer- Taryn Tinsley-Corbin. A long-time EdTech sales training manager with years of experience working with curriculum and procurement departments in school districts nationwide. She currently stays home with her three children, two of whom are Coronado Coyotes. Taryn took over the Treasurer role last November and will continue in the role for the 2020-2021 school year.

We're very enthusiastic, creative and active and we love channeling that energy into events and activities that we create for the students and teachers. I'm looking forward to seeing what kinds of virtual events we'll be creating during this unique time, and I'm also looking forward to collaborating with our wonderful volunteers.
