2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR

As a  parent of an Academy A.R.T.S. student you are automatically part of the Parent Teacher Organization and part of the academy community. The PTO is here to nurture a school community of active and engaged parents and foster a volunteer culture.

The PTO sponsors and organizes events, assists the A.R.T.S. program in purchasing new supplies, supplements Continuing Education for staff, and supports repairs and updates to the Academy’s building and programs.

The PTO is proud to assist the Academy, and we cannot achieve this without the help of volunteers and donations. Last school year, after expenses, we raised $8,700 through donations and fundraising events. This money funded new materials in the Downstairs and Upstairs classrooms, continuing education for our teachers, guest speakers, the Ages and Stages Screenings to help identify students in need of early intervention, and teacher recognition luncheon and retirement gifts. The PTO also contriubuted to building updates which included new floors in Studio 1, as well as curtains and hooks for the preschool classrooms. This year we have set our fundraising goal at $9,500, same as last year, and we hope to support similiar initiatives as last year. Consider helping us kickstart our fundraising this year by making a monetary donation, purchasing Academy A.R.T.S. T-shirts, Bags, or purchasing your tickets now for our Annual Soiree & Silent Auction January 24, 2020. Checks should be made payable to “Academy A.R.T.S. PTO.”

Don’t forget to get social with us! Find the Academy A.R.T.S. PTO group on Facebook for news, events, and other fun stuff.
