From the AES PTA

Fri, 09/10/2021 - 4:21pm

Thank you for your support of AES PTA! Our community is flourishing because of volunteers’ time and talent. There are many ways to support your child’s school community. 


Room Parents

Room Parents play an important role in supporting teachers and creating a connection between teachers and families. Some responsibilities include caring for classroom teachers and support staff, creating a class directory for class distribution, facilitating communication between teachers and families, and assisting with special activities. If you would like to volunteer to be a room parent for your child’s teacher, please complete this form

PTA Membership

Membership in the PTA is an important way to support programs that enrich your child’s elementary school experience. Membership is a primary source of funds each year, allowing PTA to offer great programs and activities at AES. Membership is open to parents, guardians, grandparents, extended family, community, faculty & staff. Other perks of joining PTA include free AES PTA car magnet (I know those Kindergarten families are excited for these!) & entry in raffles for priority parking at school events. Please visit the PTA website and scroll to the bottom to select membership for the 2021-22 school year.

Teacher’s Amazon Wish Lists

Studies show that online shopping decreases stress. (Let's agree to not fact-check this one.) PTA is gathering Amazon Wish Lists for our staff. The webpage is updated as we receive lists. If you don’t see your student’s homeroom teacher, please consider shopping for another member of our dedicated staff.
