The PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) is an important part of many American schools in the United States and overseas. It is the primary volunteer group of parents that works with teachers and the school's administration to help provide the best learning and social environment possible for our children.
AOSR has carried on the tradition of having an active and vibrant PTO throughout its 65 year old history.
Our main purpose is to provide an opportunity for parents to get involved in supporting school-wide events and activities. We work together, along with teachers and the school’s administration to provide support for student programs, social activities and fundraising events. The PTO designs its activities and events to enhance the educational experience of all our students. We invite you to join us as we work together to enrich the education of our students and strengthen the connection between school and home. We depend on you to volunteer and make these events a success.
The AOSR PTO works in the following areas:
- Grade 3 Publishing Project: February through April
