Parent Teacher Organization

The purpose of the ACS Parent Teacher Organization is to enhance the education and enrich the environment of our students and the staff in a variety of ways. The PTO coordinates the following areas, all of which benefit from the efforts of volunteers:

  • Staff Support
  • Hospitality
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Field trip funding

The ACS PTO:

  • provides funds for the yearbook
  • provides funds for each teacher to enhance their efforts in the classroom
  • provides contact room parents with funds to help support classroom activities
  • funds the curriculum enhancement opportunities enjoyed by all ages of students
  • provides $5 per student to offset the cost of field trips
  • supports 5th grade camp and provides music scholarships for band and orchestra students
  • contributes to the purchase of books for the library
  • purchases Bibles for 3rd graders that are used through the 8th grade
  • purchases items yearly from a teacher “wish list” (which amounted to $30,000 of classroom items this year)
  • and does much, much more
