Arroyo Del Oso PTA
"At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success, is the positive involvement of parents"- Jane Hull
4th and 5th Grade Musical Performance
WHEN: Friday, November 16th
WHERE: ADO Library
PTA: "Parent-Teacher Association" Our mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
The PTA is made up completely of parent, teacher and staff volunteers who all work together within the national PTA guidelines. We strive to provide our students with a balance of fun and learning while giving them the best school experience we can.
Why Our School Needs The PTA
The members of the ADO PTA are the ones we can thank for hosting our favorite events and activities such as the 'Welcome Back Picnic', 'Fall Festival' and 'Valentines Day Social' additionally, the PTA also runs the 'Boo-Hoo Breakfast', Donuts For Dads, Munchies For Moms and many more programs that help create our school culture. We believe that there should be a fun and exciting element to school to balance the discipline and learning. Furthermore, the PTA also provides teachers with our school calendars, planners, student folders, additional funding for out-of-pocket expenses AND SO MUCH MORE.
Parent Volunteers Needed More Than Ever
Whether your child has been enrolled for five years or five months, parents may not be aware that just last year, Arroyo Del Oso Elementary School was facing the possibility of completely dissolving the PTA. The PTA is completely voluntary and the lack of parent involvement in the program meant that the teachers and staff were solely responsible for organizing our favorite events and left alone to support the school. No one is being paid extra to host these activities for families. Teachers are paid to educate our children inside the classroom. They have families and personal lives of their own and can no longer be asked to carry all the weight. The fact of the matter is that in recent years, the ADO PTA has had to rely on a ratio of 1 person performing the tasks of 6. In order for ADO to provide fun activities to help balance the learning, and to continue to support the needy families, we absolutely need parent volunteers as well as new parent PTA members. Let's not risk loosing such a wonderful program that helps not only the school, but everyone in the ADO community. Please contact any member of the PTA to sign up and see how you can get involved today!
