What is PTSO?
The purpose of the PTSO (Parent, Teacher, Student Organization) is to support our parents, school staff and especially our children. The programs and events we sponsor are designed to enhance our student's learning experience.
This year we hope to facilitate several family engagement activities. We also sponsor a variety of fundraisers throughout the year such as the World’s Finest Chocolate candy bar sale and Hoopalooza. These fundraisers help meet expenses not covered by the school system. Previous contributions to our organization have allowed us to fund great programs and activities including "Reading is Fun" day with free books for each student, rubber mulch for the school playgrounds, over $30,000 worth of books for the Library & money for every teacher to spend in their classroom.
Our membership drive begins in Meet the Teacher Night and runs through the end of. The cost is $5 per person. Anyone can join! They do not have to be a parent of a student, just someone willing to contribute to ABES. It is a great way to show support of our school.
PTSO meetings are held the 2nd Monday of each month in the school Library. We encourage everyone to join us! Our PTSO thrives on volunteers!
Ways to stay connected and learn about volunteer opportunities include joining our school Facebook page and watching our flyers to come home in your child’s backpack. You will receive a PTSO packet the first week back!
