Parent Teacher Organization

Our Alpharetta Presbyterian Parent-Teacher Organization is organized for the purpose of enhancing our children’s overall school experience by fostering strong relationships between parents and teachers through solid program support and open line communication, leading to more effective instruction and a better learning environment throughout the school year.


GOALS

  • Maintain a welcoming environment for all parents, students, and teachers.
  • Create fun volunteer opportunities for parents that will enable them to better understand their child’s school experience.
  • Raise funds for the activities planned and to supplement school needs for equipment and supplies.

FUNDING

Each year we raise money for the PTO with the following activities:

  • “A Little Goes a Long Way" Fundraising Drive — Each family is asked to provide startup costs for the PTO by donating at the beginning of each year. 

  • Chick-fil-A Lunches — Children have the opportunity to purchase a Chick-fil-A lunch delivered right to their classroom.

  • High Five Canvas Art — A framed canvas art project will be available in the spring to purchase as a fundraiser to support the planned activities.
