Get Involved

Many Hands make light work

Parent volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for the school community while showing their kids the importance of participating in the larger community. Not only will the school reap the benefits of your involvement — you will, too. By interacting with teachers, administrators, and other parents on a regular basis, you'll gain a firsthand understanding of your child's daily activities. You'll also tap into trends and fads of school life that can help you communicate with your kids as they grow and change.  The ARE PTO’s goal is to facilitate a positive relationship between our parents, teachers, administrators and our local community. We would love to have you as a volunteer!

As you can see, we have a lot going on. We are moms, dads, uncles, aunts, grandparents, and friends who care about our children and their education.  The results of school involvement are startling: When families are involved in children's education grades, test scores, and student-confidence goes up.  We look forward to seeing you!
