Meet the 2024-2025 Board

The PTO Board is made of volunteer parents who have been nominated and voted into office.  Each year, every PTO Board position is vacated and a new Board election takes place (April).  The Board nomination forms are made available to all PTO members (Patterson parents and teachers) in March.  We encourage all parents who would like to get more involved at  Patterson to consider running for a Board position!

Ryan Masser - President

Ryann Masser


I’m Ryann Masser, and I’m serving my third year as the PTO President. I’m thrilled about another exciting year at Patterson! This year, I will have two boys attending Patterson—Camden in 5th grade and Maddox in 1st. In addition to my volunteering at the school, I also work full-time. During my “free” time, you can find me on the sidelines cheering for my boys’ soccer teams!

Katie Orlowski

Vice-President/Social Media

Hello, I’m Katie Orlowski! I’m so happy to be working with the PTO again this year. In our family, I have a son named Will going into 2nd grade and a daughter named Olivia who is going into kindergarten. Before having kids, I worked as a teacher in Alhambra District, Deer Valley Unified School District, and Queen Creek Unified. We love living in Adora Trails and eagerly anticipate a fantastic school year at Patterson!

Kristal Scott


I’m Kristal Scott, and this is my first year serving on the PTO board. Over the past 4 years, I have volunteered at Patterson, contributing where I can, and I am thrilled to take on an official role and work alongside such an amazing team! My husband and I have two energetic boys at Patterson: Carter in 4th grade and Nash in 1st grade. Professionally, I am a physical therapist by day and a devoted soccer mom by night! I look forward to collaborating with parents, teachers, and staff to make this a fantastic year at Patterson!

Tricia Koch

Treasurer/Art Masterpiece

I’m Tricia Koch, your new PTO Treasurer. I’ve been happily married to my husband Brian for 24 years, and we are blessed with three children. Ainsley, our 20-year-old, is beginning her first year as an elementary teacher. She’s engaged to Garrett. Aspen, our 17-year-old, is a senior at Basha High School, and Andrew, our 10-year-old, is in 4th grade. I taught for 9 years in various grades, including 6th, 1st, and as a math specialist. Currently, I substitute at Patterson. I absolutely LOVE volunteering at the school, whether it’s making copies, participating in Art Masterpiece, or being part of the PTO.

Portia Chambers

Portia Chambers

Teacher Appreciation Coordinator

I’ve been a resident of Gilbert for 16 years, living here with my husband and two boys, aged 9 and 5.5 years old. My oldest child has been a student at Patterson since Kindergarten, and my younger child will be this year! I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as the Teacher/Staff Appreciation Coordinator, where I can pamper and support the incredible Patterson staff throughout this school year.

We Fundraise

Patterson PTO operates on an annual budget built upon donations, sponsorships, and fundraising efforts.

We raise funds for Patterson to make up for any CUSD budget deficit or for items that the CUSD budget are not allocated for.  At the beginning of each school year, we survey the Patterson teachers and staff members to find out what the school could truly benefit from.  

Our top FUNdraiser is our Progress for Patterson campaign, a direction donation drive that allows for 100% of all tax-deductible donations to stay at Patterson!  Look for more information about #P4P in February.

PTO is proud to have put 60% of our budget directly back into the classrooms in the school year!

P4P Funds

The above totals are rounded to the nearest $1,000.

Governing Documents

Patterson PTO is governed by a set of approved by-laws and our annual operating budget.  The current PTO by-laws and operating budget were approved at a General Meeting August 9, 2022.
