Welcome to the 2017-18 Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)! We are so excited you are here and look forward to seeing all the new and familiar faces of our AHES community.
Throughout the year, the PTO organizes a variety of events and activities that bring our AHES community together. We kicked off this school year with a delicious hot breakfast to welcome back approximately 100 staff members on their first day of the 2017-18 school year. Next up…
- a Kindergarten Popsicle Social on Friday, August 25 from 6-7:30 p.m. on the upper playground
- our first monthly PTO meeting on Tuesday, August 29, from 7-8pm in the school library.
- our Welcome Back Family Picnic and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new playground on Sunday, September 17 from 3-6 p.m.
- and our largest event of the year our Fall Festival and Silent Auction on Saturday, October 28 from 4-7 p.m.
The PTO mets monthly, usually on the 4th Tuesday of the month, from 7-8pm. Attending these meetings is a great opportunity to share your ideas and get involved, meet and stay connected with other families, and be engaged in your child’s educational experience.
This year, the PTO will be raising funds to support a variety of projects, including playground updates, beautification projects throughout the interior and exterior of the building, and supporting field trips, projects, and assemblies. We will be running a direct donation project that will lead up to our Fall Festival and hope that every family will consider supporting this fundraising effort.
We invite all of you to play an active role in our 2017-18 PTO; there is truly an opportunity for everyone to participate and we will work with you to find out the best way for you to support the PTO while finding balance with your home, family, work life.
