Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
A letter from our president:
On behalf of the AAM PTA, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our wonderful community! The PTA strives to make the school year as fun, educational, and productive as possible, and we are very excited about what we have planned for the 2023-2024 school year!
Our purpose is to positively impact the lives of our children by bringing parents, teachers, and the community together to support our children’s educational success. Our primary objective as a PTA is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources, and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child, and benefit the school.
One of the ways YOU can make this the best year for your family and our community is by joining the PTA! This is your chance to be a member of a great organization that funds many of the opportunities that you see on campus, such as classroom support materials, bus expenses, field trip entrance fees, and many additional enrichment programs and events that make our school even better.
Parent involvement has been proven to be the greatest predictor of student success! By getting involved at home and school, children do better, grades are higher, test scores rise, self esteem grows, and schools improve. Participating in the PTA will have a direct effect on the culture of our school and your student’s experience. Joining and volunteering in the PTA enables you to stay connected, know what is happening, meet other families, build rapport, and share ideas and experiences.
While we encourage all members to attend meetings regularly, attendance is not a requirement for membership. You can participate as much or as little as you would like or are able, finding a perfect balance that is right for you. Everyone is invited to join our PTA meetings held once a month, and anyone who is interested in supporting your student can join! Parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, close friends, brothers, sisters, all are welcome.

We are looking forward to a great year filled with fantastic events, community building
activities, and most importantly supporting our kids and teachers so they can continue to attain excellence in education!
