Welcome to Grout Elementary PTA

Grout Elementary School is located in Portland, Oregon and has an active Parent Teacher Association (PTA-) that works on a variety of activities and events to support our kids, our school and our neighborhood community.

Our Mission: The Grout PTA is a group of passionate parents, guardians and teachers whose primary focus is to advocate for high-quality education and the well-being of all Grout students.  The PTA works to coordinate and support events that bring the Grout community together and to raise funds for projects and programs that strengthen our school, community and neighborhood.

All of Grout PTA’s communications are announced through an app called Konstella–a communication service built specifically for parent organizations. Check out the 2-minute demo video to learn more about how it works.


“On behalf of the PTA I’d like to welcome you…either back to Grout, or as families new to the school! Our PTA exists as a parent resource for every parent/guardian, a child advocate for every child and a partner for every teacher. We are looking forward to an amazing 2019-20 school year. If you have any questions, comments, concerns or have not received an invite to join Konstella, please contact me at groutpta@gmail.com.” —Julie Bolstad, 2019-20 Grout Elementary PTA President
