OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. WE support the academic, cultural, social and emotional needs of all ACES students through volunteer engagement, fundraising and relevant programing. We strive to be a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities and a strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child.
Who we are
We are parent and teacher volunteers committed to enhancing the educational experience at ACES through a wide range of initiatives. We support ACES teachers, staff and families.
why should I join the pta?
The programs we support would not be possible without our members. The most important way you can help the PTA succeed is by joining - every year! The $10 membership dues go directly to the school and benefit all students. When you join the PTA, your membership has a direct impact on the educational experience at ACES.
A few reasons why you should join the PTA:
-Stay connected and informed with school and community information. Members receive a monthly newsletter via email detailing events, volunteer opportunities, news, and important announcements.
-Strengthen the ACES community by providing input, volunteering, and networking with other families, teachers, and staff.
-Membership dues and fundraising efforts raise money to support the needs of our school community.
-Members can be involved as much (or as little) as they would like to be!
- Do I have to join every year?
Yes! Membership is valid for 1 year. Please join each year so that the PTA can continue to provide the tools, resources, and materials year after year.
- Do I have to have a child at ACES to join?
No! We welcome anyone to join the PTA. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, or any community member is welcome to join. Membership is open to anyone who believes in and supports the mission of the PTA.
- Am I required to volunteer my time if I join the PTA?
No time commitment is required. Each and every member helps support the school regardless of how much time they contribute.
- I want to volunteer occasionally but can’t commit to a board member role. Can I still get involved?
Yes! There are many committees that need volunteers. Some opportunities are one-time commitments and others may involve helping on a more regular basis. There are opportunities for everyone at any level of time commitment or responsibility.
