Welcome to the PTSO!
The PTSO (Parent Teacher Student Organization) includes representatives from both the Acton-Boxborough Regional High School and RJ Grey Junior High School. Our mission is to serve the schools in the following ways:

Communication ─ We interact directly with the home, school, school committee and community through email newsletters
  • Sign up for the Junior High & High School Weekly Chatter, that tell you everything you need to know about the upcoming school week with a separate edition for each school
  • Sign up for Grey Matters, Junior High Principal Shen’s weekly newsletter
  • Update your Email Profile
Financial Support ─ We support programs, projects, field trips, Freshmen Orientation, grants to the Jr. High and High Schools, student scholarships and student directories.
Speaker Forums ─ Our annual speaker series provides forums for students, parents, faculty and the community. The ABRPTSO works closely with the school administration and other community organizations to identify topics of most interest and relevance to our community.
INTERFACE Referral Service ─ this mental-health and wellness referral help line connects people of all ages to mental health providers. Due to our contract with INTERFACE, the service is free to Acton and Boxborough residents. More information is available here.

If your current 9th, 10th or 11th grader will not be attending ABRHS next year, please be sure to let the school know as soon as possible. If you are in this situation, please email Jeanne Potter at jpotter@abschools.org and include your child's name, as well as the name and location of the school s/he will be attending. The school is required to furnish that information on a state report.

A-B High School Cafe

The ABRHS Cafe will be open and available to all students during summer school dates (June 28 through August 8). Breakfast and lunch will be sold daily from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. If your child was eligible for free or reduced lunch this school year, their eligibility will continue through the summer. See the attached flyer for summer cafe details.

Summer Volunteer Opportunities

There are many volunteer opportunities available to high school students this summer. Some are one-time opportunities, and others offer the chance for a longer involvement. If your son or daughter missed signing up at the recent Summer Volunteer Opportunities Fair, it's not too late. The sign up sheets will be in the Counseling office all this week, and students and parents can always check out the ABRHS Volunteer Website for all the volunteer positions available.
